Periodicity of Lunar Eclipses

Summary of Lunar Eclipses in Saros Series -20 to 183

A concise summary of the 204 lunar eclipse Saros series (-20 to 183) in progress during the 5000-year period from -1999 to +3000 (2000 BCE to 3000 CE) is presented in the following table. The number of lunar eclipses in each series is listed followed by the calendar dates of the first and last eclipses in the Saros. Finally, the chronological sequence of lunar eclipse types in the series is tabulated. The number and type of eclipses varies from one Saros series to the next as reflected in the sequence diversity. Note that the tables make no distinction between central and non-central total lunar eclipses. The following abbreviations are used in the eclipse sequences:

                                T = Total Lunar Eclipse
                                P = Partial Lunar Eclipse
                                N = Partial Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
                                N* = Total Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
