Contents

Saros series

Lunar saros series 138 has 19 total eclipses between September 7, 2044 and June 8, 2495. The longest eclipse will be on January 7, 2243, and last for 102 minutes.

Partial eclipses will occur between June 13, 1900 and August 13, 2603. Penumbral eclipses will occur between October 5, 1503 and March 30, 2982.

Metonic series

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.
