The Eighth Pass on Pern took place from 2008AL to 2058AL. It was followed by a Long Interval during which five of the six weyrs disappeared.

During the Eighth Pass, Ista Hold and Keroon Hold recorded bright flashes on the Red Star. These flashes were actually the explosion of one of the colony ship's engines, brought back in time from the Ninth Pass by Jaxom and other draognriders.

Weyrleaders at the end of the Eighth Pass were T'ron of Fort Weyr, T'kul of High Reaches Weyr, D'ram of Ista Weyr, R'mart of Telgar Weyr and G'narish of Igen Weyr.
