Solar Eclipse 2021

In the year 2021, a total of two events of Solar Eclipse will occur. Out of which the first Solar Eclipse will be an Annular Eclipse, and the second and last will be a Total Solar Eclipse. In such a case, let us find out the Solar Eclipse dates and timings, and know more about its visibility in several other countries around the globe. Along with this, we have also shared some tips and points you must keep in mind to follow during the occurrence of the eclipse. As per some religious scriptures, some astrological measures as per the birth chart must be carried out to evade the malefic effects of Solar Eclipse.

How Solar Eclipse in 2021 Occurs?

According to scientists, a Solar Eclipse in 2021 occurs when the Earth, Moon and Sun, all come together and stay positioned in a straight line while moving around in their orbital paths. During this time, the planet Moon completely covers the Sun, which affects its rays from entering the surface of the Earth. In such a state, the sky appears dark since there’s no sunlight, and this phenomenon is titled as Solar Eclipse.

Mythological Significance of Solar Eclipse 2021

Apart from its scientific importance, the Solar Eclipse holds great mythological significance, which is also mentioned in the great Matsya Purana. According to it, when the Amrit or Nectar of Immortality was extracted from the ocean during the Samudra Manthan, a war began between the Gods and Demons or Asuras since both of them wanted to consume it. In the midst of all, a demon named Swarbhanu planned a strategy to fulfill his wishes of consuming the nectar by hiding among the Gods. But during all of this, Lord Surya and Lord Chandra revealed his reality by catching him.

As soon as this trick played by the Asura Swarbhanu became known to Lord Vishnu, he became angry and separated his head and torso with his Sudarshan Chakra. But since Swarbhanu had tasted the Amrit, he did not die. Instead, his head was named Rahu, whereas his torso became Rahu. Hence, as a result of his vengeance, every year Rahu covers the Moon and the Sun and causes the phenomenon of Solar Eclipse.

Types of 2021 Solar Eclipse

  • Total Solar Eclipse: When the Moon completely covers the surface of the Sun while forming a straight alignment with the Earth and the Sun, it is known as a Total Solar Eclipse.
  • Partial Solar Eclipse: When the Moon partially covers the surface of the Sun, due to which the Sun is only half visible and its rays are partially prevented from reaching the Earth’s surface, it is called a Partial Solar Eclipse.
  • Annular Solar Eclipse: An Annular Solar Eclipse is a phenomenon when the planet Moon only covers the Sun middle area and as a result, a ring-like shape is visible.

According to the Hindu Panchag, there are eight phases or prahars from sunrise to sunset in total, out of which four pahars or twelve hours prior, the Sutak Kaal for a Solar Eclipse begins and ends with the end of the Eclipse.
