A solar eclipse generally starts at one place and ends at another. Moreover, because of the solar eclipse and lunar eclipse, the shape and shadows of the sun and the moon can be different.
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon lies between the sun and the earth. The moon either covers the sun completely or covers it partially. Thus, four kinds of solar eclipses happen on this day.
These Are The Four Types Of Solar Eclipses
- Total Solar Eclipse: When the whole moon comes before the sun and only the corona is visible as a faint light.
- Annular Solar Eclipse: It happens when the sun and the moon are in line but the moon covers it in such a way that only a small dark circle in the middle is visible.
- Hybrid Solar Eclipse: This eclipse will happen when the sun and moon are in one line, but it looks like an annular as well as a total solar eclipse.
- Partial Solar eclipse: When the sun is covered only partially.

Generally, there are two eclipses in a row whenever we have an eclipse. So we can say that an eclipse does not come alone. This time, there will be three, the third being on August 11, 2018.
Do This After Solar Eclipse
Never forget that astrology says a solar eclipse leaves a negative effect on people and things. Therefore, we must observe the prescribed rules in order to protect ourselves.
For example, after the eclipse is over, we must not forget to take a bath. Women must not forget to take a head bath. Making donations on this day is seen to be very beneficial astrologically.
