Maybe Will is a astrolger , hm..... The only reference to the number 139 I can think of offhand is that we are in the Saros cycle of 139.

The periodicity and recurrence of solar (and lunar) eclipses is governed by the Saros cycle, a period of approximately 6,585.3 days (18 years 11 days 8 hours). When two eclipses are separated by a period of one Saros, they share a very similar geometry. The two eclipses occur at the same node[1] with the Moon at nearly the same distance from Earth and at the same time of year. Thus, the Saros is useful for organizing eclipses into families or series. Each series typically lasts 12 to 13 centuries and contains 70 or more eclipses. Every saros series begins with a number of partial eclipses near one of Earth'* polar regions. The series will then produce several dozen central[2] eclipses before ending with a group of partial eclipses near the opposite pole.

Solar eclipses of Saros 139 all occur at the Moon’* ascending node and the Moon moves southward with each eclipse. The series began with a partial eclipse in the northern hemisphere on 1501 May 17. The series will end with a partial eclipse in the southern hemisphere on 2763 Jul 03. The total duration of Saros series 139 is 1262.11 years. In summary:

First Eclipse = 1501 May 17 03:27:44 TD
Last Eclipse = 2763 Jul 03 09:58:23 TD

Duration of Saros 139 = 1262.11 Years

Saros 139 is composed of 71 solar eclipses as follows:
Solar Eclipses of Saros 139
Eclipse Type Symbol Number Percent
All Eclipses - 71 100.0%
Partial P 16 22.5%
Annular A 0 0.0%
Total T 43 60.6%
Hybrid[3] H 12 16.9%

Umbral eclipses (annular, total and hybrid) can be further classified as either: 1) Central (two limits), 2) Central (one limit) or 3) Non-Central (one limit). The statistical distribution of these classes in Saros series 139 appears in the following table.
Umbral Eclipses of Saros 139
Classification Number Percent
All Umbral Eclipses 55 100.0%
Central (two limits) 55 100.0%
Central (one limit) 0 0.0%
Non-Central (one limit) 0 0.0%

The following string illustrates the sequence of the 71 eclipses in Saros 139: 7P 12H 43T 9P

The longest and shortest eclipses of Saros 139 as well as other eclipse extrema are listed below.

Longest Total Solar Eclipse: 2186 Jul 16 Duration = 07m29s
Shortest Total Solar Eclipse: 2601 Mar 26 Duration = 00m35s

Longest Hybrid Solar Eclipse: 1825 Dec 09 Duration = 01m34s
Shortest Hybrid Solar Eclipse: 1627 Aug 11 Duration = 00m00s

Largest Partial Solar Eclipse: 2619 Apr 06 Magnitude = 0.9781
Smallest Partial Solar Eclipse: 2763 Jul 03 Magnitude = 0.0562



For an animation showing how the eclipse path changes with each member of the series, see Saros 139 Animation.

Maybe I should have made 49477 dots instead.




Make that 49,478 now.
