The word eclipse denotes a scientific, we can rather say an astronomical phenomenon.Generally an eclipse is a block out.There are lunar and solar eclipses.In the lunar eclipse, the moon is eclipsed, when the sun, earth and the moon come on the straight line, in which the moon is totally not visible or eclipsed to a section of the people on the earth.Similarly, in the solar eclipse, when the sun, earth and the moon come on a straight line, I mean, when the moon comes between the earth and the sun, the sun is eclipsed, in whcih, the  entire people  on the earth cannot see the sun.But the sun eclipse or the moon eclipse, is a phenomenon that only lasts for a few minutes.Thereafter, when all the three celestial bodies are on the move, i.e on their routine revolution, gradually, the eclipse of the sun ot the moon disappears, i.e the total block out disappears and the people on the earth can see the moon or the sun, as usual.

Astrology describes the solar or lunar eclipse in a different point of view, as if one of the Navagrahas, say, the Raghu, swallows the moon or the sun during the eclipse.Astrology also accurately predicts when exactly a lunar or solar eclipse occurs, so that the people on the earth get alerted from seeing these phenomenons with their naked eyes.

Generally, the people on the earth are not allowed to see the lunar or the solar eclipse with their naked eye.Instead, they are adviced to view the lunar or solar eclipse, through a glass, specially made for the occasion, so that their vision is not affected.People also take a bath, when the lunar or the solar eclipse is over.The lunar eclipse or the solar eclipse is scientifically known as the lunar solstice or the solar solstice.
