August 1988 lunar eclipse

A partial lunar eclipse took place on August 27, 1988.

Contents

Saros series

This eclipse is part of Saros cycle series 118.

Metonic cycle (19 years)

The Metonic cycle repeats nearly exactly every 19 years and represents a Saros cycle plus one lunar year. Because it occurs on the same calendar date, the earth's shadow will be in nearly the same location relative to the background stars.
