What will be the Sutak period?

An eclipse happens when a planet or a moon gets in the way of the sun’s light. Here on earth, we can experience two kinds of the eclipse: solar eclipse and lunar eclipse.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon gets in the way of the sun’s light and casts its shadow on earth, which means during the day, the moon moves over the sun, and it gets dark. During a lunar eclipse, the earth gets in the way of the sun’s light hitting the moon. A full moon fades away during the night as the earth’s shadow covers it up.

Solar and Lunar Eclipses are considered significant events in the year, as per the Hindu calendar.

There were four eclipses in the year 2022.
