History. The earliest discovered historical record of what is known as the saros is by Chaldean (neo-Babylonian) astronomers in the last several centuries BC.

It was later known to Hipparchus, Pliny and Ptolemy. The name "saros" (Greek: σάρος) was applied to the eclipse cycle by Edmond Halley inwho took it from the Suda, a Byzantine lexicon of the 11th century. Babylonian clay tablets (such as the one to the left listing eclipses between and BC) record the earliest total solar eclipse seen in Ugarit on May 3, BC.

Babylonian astrologers kept careful records about celestial happenings including the motions of Mercury, Venus, the Sun, and the Moon on tablets dating from to BC. - Procedure texts, mathematical - Table texts - “Astrology” From a modern point of view, it can be disputed whether celestial omens should be included among sources of Babylonian astronomy.

For the Ancients the modern difference between astronomy and astrology certainly did not exist, as can be seen, e. g., from the inclusion of lunar tables in Tablet XIV of the omen collection. The earliest reports of attempts to predict eclipses are recorded in the correspondence between the Neo‐Assyrian kings of Mesopotamia and their scholars during the seventh century BCE (Hunger ; Parpola ; Steele b; Brown –).For example, a letter sent by one Mar‐Issar to the king reads (Parpola ): To the king, my lord: your servant Mar‐Issar.

The eclipse of BC begins in the south, but does not match the First Ur III eclipse. The beginning of the third eclipse is in the north-east.

We propose the lunar eclipse of BC. There is another lunar omen which reports about the end of Ur (EAE 20 x II) (Rochberg-Halton, 87f). The best t is the lunar eclipse of : B. Banjevic. Babylonian astronomy was the study or recording of celestial objects during early history records can be found on Sumerian clay tablets, inscribed in cuneiform, dated to around BCE.

The Saros cycle of synodic months played an important role in Late Babylonian astronomy. It was used to predict the dates of future eclipse possibilities together with the times of those eclipses and underpinned the development of mathematical lunar theories.
