 As each year begins let's see how many holidays there are in that year. Likewise, people interested in celestial activities will explore what is happening in astronomy this year.

According to reports, there will be a total of four eclipses in 2023. Astronomers say that there will be two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses out of which the first solar eclipse is special. Do you know the reason...let's see!


The first eclipse of 2023

The first solar eclipse of 2023 will occur on April 20, 2023. According to the Hindu calendar, the solar eclipse will begin at 7.04 am and continue till 12.29 pm. According to scientists, it is predicted that the peak of a total solar eclipse will last about 7 minutes and 32 seconds. It can last for a maximum of 12 minutes and 29 seconds.

It is believed that the world may plunge into darkness for 7.32 minutes due to this. This solar eclipse can be seen by people in South Asia, East Asia, Australia, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, and Antarctica. But not found in India.

The second eclipse

The first lunar eclipse of 2023 will occur on May 5, 2023, 15 days after the first solar eclipse. According to the Hindu calendar, the lunar eclipse will begin at 8.45 pm and end at 1 am.

According to NASA, the first lunar eclipse of the year will be a penumbral lunar eclipse. This means that the direct shadow of the Earth does not fall on the Moon. This is an eclipse caused by a lateral shadow. It is known only to people in Africa, Asia and Australia.

The third eclipse

The second solar eclipse will occur on October 14, 2023. This solar eclipse will not be visible in India. It is found in West Africa, North America, South America, Atlantic and Arctic regions.

Also, this is an annular solar eclipse, which means that the sun will not completely set. The middle part disappears and only the circular ring is visible around it.

The fourth eclipse

The last eclipse of 2023 will occur on October 29, 2023. The second lunar eclipse of the year will begin at 1:06 am and end at 2:22 pm. Only this lunar eclipse is visible in India. This lunar eclipse will be a partial eclipse. That means only half the moon will disappear and come back.

Although only one of the four eclipses will be visible in India, the other three can be viewed on NASA's website. But never try to see with the naked eye. The eye can suffer permanent damage. Look only with X-ray glasses, special tubes available for this, and laboratory telescopes.
