A.15 Eclipse Table

The eclipse cycle repeats after 223 synodic months. Note that one synodic month = 29.53058885 days, but varies between 29.25 and 29.75. 223 synodic months = 6585.321 days = 18 years, 11 (10) days, 8 hours. 19 eclipse years = 6585.780 days, and the node rotates once.

The total solar eclipses, sorted by cycle, for the 20th century are given in the following table.
