From an astrological point of view, Lunar Eclipse is an important event, and people seem to act curiously regarding its influence and effects on the world. According to astronomy, when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon, it casts a shadow on the Moon, hereby creating an eclipse. On the other hand, mythology says that when Rahu and Ketu swallow the Moon, the phenomenon is said to be a Lunar Eclipse. However, an interesting story related to Samudra Manthan or Churning of the Ocean also exists in the books. Lunar Eclipse, like Solar Eclipse, occurs every year and its numbers vary accordingly. Talking about the year 2019, there were two occurrences of the Lunar Eclipse visible, in which the first Full Lunar Eclipse occurred on 21 January, while the second Partial Lunar Eclipse will take place during midnight on 16-17 July. As the first occurrence on 21 January wasn’t visible to Indians, hence, this event holds high importance, as it will be visible in India, and the period of Sutak will be effective.
