This means that, slightly over 18 years after a given eclipse, another one with very nearly the same circumstances occurs offset by only eight hours, with the Earth rotated degrees westward. Several saroses are active during any given year, and they slowly evolve over millennia. Saros began with a brief penumbral graze on April 1 st , , produced its first total eclipse on October 25 th , , and runs all the way out to May 28 th , AD.
For example, we caught member 25 of this same series as a chilly early morning eclipse on January as a teenager on December 30 th , , then caught the next eclipse in the series from Italy while in the military on the morning of January 9 th , , before seeing this eclipse setting from the shores of Spain in Observing eclipses can punctuate our lives, clockwork events we can count on. But not all eclipses are created the same.
In addition to the duration, the chief difference is the color from one total eclipse to the next. The color and shade of the eclipsed Moon is described as its Danjon Number , with 0 being dark, and 4 being a bright eclipse. Things start to get interesting once the Moon first approaches the ragged dark edge of the umbra. Then the real action begins, as totality starts. Nearby stars in the constellations of Cancer and Gemini will also start to emerge.
Want to estimate the magnitude of the eclipsed Moon? Take a look at the pinpoint Moon during totality looking at it backwards through a pair of binoculars and comparing it to a nearby bright star, such as Castor or Procyon. The trick is to know the light extinction level for your binoculars beforehand to factor it in. Do this by gauging the apparent reverse view brightness of a star or planet of known brightness. Self-promotional efforts can be successful.
