Eclipse 2024: Two Solar And Two Lunar Eclipses To Woo Skywatchers In New Year – Check Dates And More | Culture News

The year 2024 is upon us and as we enter a New Year, skywatchers are getting excited and gearing up for four unique celestial events. The year 2024 will witness two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses. When the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon’s shadow is cast on Earth, a Solar Eclipse or Surya Grahan takes place. Meanwhile, when the Earth comes between the Sun and Moon – with all three bodies lying on the same orbit plane – the Sun casts Earth’s shadow onto the Moon and a lunar eclipse or Chandra Grahan takes place.
