Next is given the node near which the eclipse occurs; and then the number in the saros.
This eclipse is a return, after one saros, of the eclipse of August 9, 1896.
Two ridges, like sprawling arms, ran down to the sea—one towards the Narrows, the other to the Gulf of saros.
One further matter connected with the saros deserves attention.
A rapid cruiser of the fleet carried the Egyptian standard along the coast as far as the regions of the Orontes and saros.
He is against its being so far north as the Gulf of saros and the narrow neck of land there.
A new eclipse thus entering will at first be a very small one, but will be larger at every recurrence in each saros.
Eclipses occur in cycles, the best known of which is the saros, although there are also smaller cycles which are not so accurate.
This cycle was known to the ancients under the name of saros.
This recurrence of eclipses after intervals of 18·03 years is called the saros, and was known to the Chaldeans.
