The discovery of the Saros was such as was within their power, and was certainly no small achievement.The Astronomy of the Bible|E. Walter Maunder
A new eclipse thus entering will at first be a very small one, but will be larger at every recurrence in each Saros.
But a given Saros eclipse in its successive reappearances undergoes other transformations besides that of Terrestrial longitude.
Eclipses occur in cycles, the best known of which is the Saros, although there are also smaller cycles which are not so accurate.
