How to use saros in a sentence
This recurrence of eclipses after intervals of 18·03 years is called the Saros, and was known to the Chaldeans.
The discovery of the Saros was such as was within their power, and was certainly no small achievement.
But a given Saros eclipse in its successive reappearances undergoes other transformations besides that of Terrestrial longitude.
A new eclipse thus entering will at first be a very small one, but will be larger at every recurrence in each Saros.
The foregoing does not by any means exhaust all that can be said respecting the Saros even on the popular side.
