Before getting the details on many eclipses occurring in the year 2024, let us check what exactly eclipses refer to and what's the reasons behind the curiosity of people. In simple terms, it can be referred to as the astronomical phenomenon that keeps occurring at regular time intervals due to the movement of the Sun, Moon, and the Earth. We all are familiar with the concept that the Earth revolves around the Sun, the Moon revolves around the Earth, Earth gets light from the Sun, and thus the Moon gets illuminated by it. Because of the movements of the Moon and the Earth, there are situations arising when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth and sometimes the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon. In such conditions, wherever the sunlight doesn’t fall on it, it becomes a darker area for some time and so becomes inferior to the sunlight. This astronomical condition is referred to as an eclipse.

Which Eclipses Will Occur In The Year 2024?

Talking about Eclipse 2024, there will be three types of eclipses, out of which there will be two solar eclipses and one lunar eclipse. Other than that, a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse is also going to happen. Keep in mind that a Penumbral lunar eclipse is not considered an eclipse as the moon’s radiance remains dull and doesn’t get affected. Hence, this is not considered a complete eclipse and this is the reason behind no mention of the Sutak period or things relating to it. The other thing to keep in mind is whether it is a solar eclipse or lunar eclipse, the area in which the eclipse is visible, the relevant Sutak period and rules are applied, and not the other areas. The natives will be able to complete all the work without trouble. It should be kept in mind that in India, both the solar eclipse and one lunar eclipse won’t be visible, hence their Sutak period and other rules are not applied in the region.

Hence, you might be interested in knowing why both solar eclipse and lunar eclipse are separately written and what they really mean. Although you might know about it, we want to tell you again about solar and lunar eclipse. Let us now understand the detailed information related to solar eclipse and lunar eclipse. Now let us know about the time of the first solar eclipse and lunar eclipse of the year:

Solar Eclipse (Surya Grahan)

As we have told you in the above section, an eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon. In a familiar way, a solar eclipse is an astronomical situation in which the Earth, at the time of revolving around the Sun on its orbital path, comes to a position in which the Moon comes in between the Sun & Earth and all the three come in a specific line. In this special situation, the Sun’s rays don’t reach the Earth’s surface for a limited period because the Sun’s light reaches the Moon before reaching the Earth and the Moon’s shadow covers the Earth. Thus, the Sun’s light does not reach the Earth for some period. In such conditions, the Sun looks to be affected when seen from the Earth. This means that for some time a complete black shadow and then a partial black shadow are visible from the earth. Such a situation is referred to as Solar Eclipse. When the entire Sun gets affected by the Moon then it is known as a solar eclipse and when it happens partially, then the situation is known as a partial solar eclipse. At times, when the distance between the both appears to be greater, then the Moon’s shadow looks to be in the middle of the Sun and it appears to be shining like a bracelet when the sunlight is seen around it. The situation is also referred to as Kankanakriti or Valyaakar solar eclipse.

Lunar Eclipse (Chandra Grahan)

Let us now discuss the Lunar Eclipse after the Solar Eclipse. As discussed earlier, the eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon, and similarly, a lunar eclipse is also a type of astronomical phenomenon. The situation is formed when the Earth revolving around the Sun and the Moon revolving around the Earth comes to a specific position. It will result in Earth coming between the Moon and the Sun and will be in a straight line. In such a situation, there won't be any type of sunlight falling on the moon for some time period and thus, the moon’s state will appear to be dim. This type of condition is referred to as Lunar Eclipse. Such a situation results in sunlight not reaching the Moon directly. The Earth’s shadow will be covering most parts of the moon and this will be known as Lunar Eclipse. As the shadow of Earth covers the Moon completely, the situation is referred to as Total Lunar Eclipse. And, when this happens partially, then it is known as Partial Lunar Eclipse. Other than that, the situation occurs when the Moon passes through Earth’s Penumbra while revolving around the earth. In such a situation, it won't feel affected i.e. it won’t feel black and the brightness will remain for a minimal period. As it appears dark, then it will be known as Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. The Moon doesn’t get affected due to it, and so has not been called an eclipse, yet for the right details to the readers, we will provide the correct information.

Sutak Period Of Eclipse: Sutak Period Of Solar Eclipse Or Lunar Eclipse

There is curiosity about Eclipse 2024 among people, and similarly one should have understanding of the rules to be followed as there is spiritual significance of the eclipse. Regarding the rules followed in Eclipse, one should be aware of the Sutak period of the eclipse. Sutak is the vital situation for both solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse. What do you mean by Sutak period? It is referred to as the timeline where the start or completion of any kind of auspicious tasks are prohibited and the period is considered very inauspicious. Talking about the Sutak’s solar eclipse period, it starts about four hours prior to the solar eclipse, i.e. before twelve hours and the Sutak period ends at the end of Solar Eclipse period. In the similar lines, the Sutak period starts three hours prior to the Lunar Eclipse, i.e. nine hours prior and the Sutak period ends with Lunar Eclipse’s end.

Any kind of auspicious task or period should be avoided during the Sutak period. During the timeline, if any kind of auspicious work is done without mistake, then there will be doubts in getting the auspicious outcomes. There will be real chances of getting auspicious results. As per the astrological details, Sun is the factor of soul & world and Moon is referred as the factor of mind & mother. As both of them are about to be eclipsed, the time will be considered as the crisis period and thus defined as the inauspicious Sutak period. The chances of success is almost negligible if auspicious work is done during the Sutak period. You need to know that, whether it is a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse, natives need to start before the start of the eclipse period. It is advisable to perform havan at the eclipse period and once it ends, natives need to bathe again and complete the auspicious tasks like charity & others. In scriptures, we can also get the importance of the eclipses. Keep in mind, as soon as the eclipse ends, one should take a bath on an immediate basis and thus become physically & mentally pure. Only after that, the Sutak period will be considered over.

After so much discussion, let us now discuss the eclipses going to happen in the year 2024 and the specific timeline. Let us now get details of Solar and Lunar Eclipse 2024 that is going to happen in the year 2024.

Due To This, There May Be Blurring Of Moonlight For Some Time and Thus, In India It Won’t Fall the Category Of Eclipse as It Is Visible Partially In The Form Of Penumbra.)

Note: If we discuss the Lunar Eclipse that comes under Eclipse 2024, the time mentioned in the table for Lunar Eclipse will be as per Indian Standard Time. This lunar eclipse is going to be partial i.e. segmental lunar eclipse. It won't be visible in India, because by the time Khandagras Lunar Eclipse starts in India, Chandrastra situation will have occurred throughout the country. Only at the start of Penumbra, there will be moonset in North-West India and North-South cities. It will result in a blurring of moonlight for some period. Thus, it will be visible in the Penumbra’s form, thus it won’t be taken in the eclipse category in India and when it isn’t an eclipse, then validity of its effects will be none.
