I recently read a paper titled : "(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The Saros cycle: obtaining eclipse periodicity from Newton's laws"

My question is, more or less: " Is it possible to obtain an approximation of G by observing Saros periodicity ? "

I'm currently studying the derivations of the Lunar , Solar, and Stellar calendars, dating back to Babylonian / Chaldean / Sumerian astronomy, and was curious about this after discovering something intriguing in Newton's work

Thanks,

Isaac
