PODCAST: Enter the Dragon ~ Saros Cycle with Gemini Brett

The saros is a period of exactly 223 synodic months that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon. One saros period after an eclipse, the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, a near straight line , and a nearly identical eclipse will occur, in what is referred to as an eclipse cycle.  Every 18 years, 11 days, and 8 hours, the cycle repeats.  With the upcoming eclipses this recalls a time when this cycle occured before.
