What is the significance of Solar Eclipse?
Solar Eclipse takes place approximately 2 to 5 times every year because the Moon’s orbit is tilted with respect to the sun and does not always align with the Sun. There are usually only two solar eclipses in a year, and it is a pretty magnificent sight that sky-gazers might not want to miss.
