Metonic series

This eclipse is the second of four Metonic cycle lunar eclipses on the same date, May 15-16, each separated by 19 years.

The Metonic cycle repeats nearly exactly every 19 years and represents a Saros cycle plus one lunar year. Because it occurs on the same calendar date, the earth's shadow will be in nearly the same location relative to the background stars.
