    • ***
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n Saros A Babylonian numeral, or unit of tale; sixty sixties (3,600).
    • n Saros An astronomical cycle of 6,585 days and 8 hours, during which period there are 223 lunations, 242 dracontic months, 239 anomalistic months lacking about 5 hours, and 18 Julian years, 10 days, and 18 hours. At the end of this time all eclipses are repeated nearly as before, except for the difference in the sun's apparent place due to the 10¾ days by which the cycle differs from a whole number of years. Moreover, the solar eclipses will fall upon parts of the earth differing by 120° of longitude. This cycle was discovered by Babylonian astronomers.
