Panorama of the Saros series 145 and 146

 The saros series 145 starts on 1639 Jan 4, and ends on 3009 Apr 17, consisting of 77. The series 146 starts on 1541 Sep 19, and ends on 2893 Dec 29, consisting of 80 eclipses.

Type of eclipse: Partial (P), Annular (A), Total (T), annular/total (AT)

 Van den Bergh (1955) found that the interval T of time between two solar (or lunar) eclipses can be established from the simple formula: T = m*inex  +  n*saros inex = 358 synodic months (10571.95 days) saros = 223 synodic months (6585.32 day, 18 years and 10,11, or 12 days,and 8 hours ) m and n are integral numbers (zero, negative or positive). The mean difference of time calculated between subsequent inex numbers for saros 145 is 6,585.333 days, for saros 146 is 6,585.336 days expected value:  6,585.32 days The mean interval of time calculated between the saros series 145 and 146 (at equal inex numbers) is 10,572.32 days (about 28 years and 11 months) (10,571.95 days expected) The results do agree very well ! The Example shows a small part of the saros-inex panorama. Saros 145 and inex 38 is the total eclipse of 1999, Aug 11 (greatest magnitude at 11:03 UT, 45.1N 24.3E, visible in Europe): To get to the next eclipse (in time) of 2000 Feb 05 (which is partial) we have to move 5 columns to the right and 8 rows upward: 5 inexes - 8 saroses = 5*358 - 8*223 = 6 lunations Saros-Inex Panorama
