What is the Saros Cycle?

What is the Saros Cycle?The Saros Cycle is an eclipse cycle with a period of nearly 18 years, 11 days and 8 hours.

It is very useful for predicting the times at which nearly identical eclipses of the sun and moon will occur. A complication with the Saros Cycle is that its period is not an integer number of days.
