(Juhi Aishwary, Intern Journalist): Between the corona crisis, 2 eclipses are going to occur simultaneously in June. Both the sun and the lunar eclipse are scheduled to occur this month. One eclipse is going to happen at the beginning of the month and the second one is going to happen at the end of the month. Lunar Eclipse will be held on 5 June and after that on 21 June, there will be a solar eclipse.
Chandra Grahan is an astronomical event. When the Sun, Earth, and Moon align in a straight line we see a solar eclipse or lunar eclipse depending on the position of the Earth. A lunar eclipse occurs when the entire moon is out and comes between the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon. In this way, the rays of the sun do not reach the moon directly. It is only when the Earth comes between both the Sun and the Moon.
According to the information, there are four lunar eclipses in 2020 – one took place in January and the rest are due in June, July, and November. The lunar eclipse to be held on 5 June will be a shadow. This means that the moon will pass through the earth’s light shadow.
What time will the lunar eclipse take place on June 5
The full moon date of Jyeshtha month is on 5 June. The lunar eclipse that occurs on this day will be of 3 hours and 18 minutes. This lunar eclipse will begin at 11.15 at night on June 5 and will reach its maximum eclipse by June 12 at 12.54 am. The shadow lunar eclipse will end at 2.34 am on 6 June. People from Asia, Europe, Australia, and Africa can see this eclipse. However, due to the shadow lunar eclipse, it will be difficult for people to differentiate between the normal moon and eclipse moon. This eclipse can be seen all over India, but during this eclipse, the moon will not be cut from anywhere i.e. there will be no change in the shape of the moon. He will be seen walking in the sky in his full size. During this eclipse, the image of the moon will fade. That is, the moon will look a little beige. The reason for this is that it is not an actual lunar eclipse; it is a shadow lunar eclipse. Earlier, on January 10, a similar lunar eclipse occurred.
The solar eclipse is an astronomical event. A solar eclipse occurs because of the moon’s arrival between the Earth and the Sun. During this time, the shadow of the moon falls on the earth and the place where this shadow falls is partially dark. In such a situation, the sun should not be seen with naked eyes. On June 21 this year, there will be a solar eclipse.
Solar Eclipse Timing on June 21
The only solar eclipse visible in India in the year 2020 is going to happen on June 21. This eclipse will begin from 9.15 am on 21st. The permaculture will remain 99.4 percent of this eclipse, that is, the sun will be completely hidden in some places. This eclipse will be about 5 hours, 48 minutes 3 seconds. The widespread impact of this eclipse will be seen in India, South-Eastern Europe, Africa, Afghanistan, China, Pakistan, Verma. This eclipse may affect India’s relations with neighboring countries.
Lunar eclipse again in first week of july
The third lunar eclipse of the year is going to take place in the first week of July. This eclipse will also not be a full or partial lunar eclipse. It will also be a shadow lunar eclipse like both previous lunar eclipses. But it will not be visible in India because sunrise would have happened in India at the time of a lunar eclipse. Therefore, this eclipse will not have much impact on India.
