Thanks for the info! I saw that "Sar" means prince/King in Aramaic/Hebrew, so I decided to google "Saros 127". I found this table. If you scroll down to "Catalog of eclipses of Saros 127", one happened in 1947!! The next to occur is July 2019. I wonder if I just thought I heard "star" but heard "sar" and not recognizing the word, thought I heard "star". Still, the Sun is a star... It's a stretch, but interesting nonetheless.
