The last solar eclipse of this year will take place on December 4, 2021. A solar eclipse occurs when a shadow falls on our planet when the moon comes between the sun and the earth. The type of eclipse depends on how much the moon or sun is obscured, and how much their shadow is visible on each other. Solar eclipses are of three types namely Khagras, Khandgras and Kankanakriti. For a total solar eclipse, the sun, moon, and earth must be in a straight line. A total eclipse is visible when it lands on the center of the moon’s shadow. At the time of solar eclipse, the sky gets dark, it looks like morning or evening time.
