What is Chandra Grahana / Lunar Eclipse
A lunar eclipse, also known as Chandra Grahan, is a celestial event where the Earth moves directly between the Sun and the Moon, causing the Moon to enter the Earth’s shadow.
Lunar eclipses come in different types: total, partial, and penumbral, with each type varying in the degree to which the Moon is obscured by Earth’s shadow.
In many cultures and belief systems, lunar eclipses are considered significant events, often associated with symbolism, spiritual practices, and astrological interpretations.
