Eclipses In 2021: Here Are The Dates And Time For The Same

An eclipse is an astronomical event that takes place when a heavenly body moves through the shadow of another heavenly body. When it comes to earth, we have two kinds of eclipses namely Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse. These occur when the sun, moon and earth are aligned in one straight line. The solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes in between the sun and the moon. In a solar eclipse, the shadow coming from the sun falling on the earth is blocked by the moon. While in the lunar eclipse, the shadow coming from the sun is blocked by the earth due to which a part of the moon seems to be dark.
