2 eclipses are going to happen this month in October 2023 know

Solar Lunar Eclipse October 2023: The month of October is going to be interesting in terms of events happening in the sky. There are going to be 2 eclipses this month. Both the Sun (Surya Grahan 2023) and the Moon (Chandra Grahan 2023) will be eclipsed. It will start on 14th October. When an annular solar eclipse 'Ring of Fire' will be visible in 8 states of America. According to the American space agency NASA, this eclipse will be seen from Oregon to the Gulf of Mexico in the north of America.

Because this eclipse will not be effective in India, if you want to see it, then you can turn to online platforms. NASA is going to do live coverage of this eclipse. The eclipse can be seen on its official YouTube channel. This means that people from all over the world will be able to watch the spectacle of 'Ring of Fire' live online.

What is Ring of Fire?

Circular or annular solar eclipse is also called Ring of Fire. This happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. However, it does not cover the Sun completely and looks like a black disk on the Sun.

After the solar eclipse on October 14, a partial lunar eclipse is going to occur on October 28. It will be visible across much of the Eastern Hemisphere, including Europe, Africa, Asia, Antarctica and Oceania. However, this eclipse will also not be effective in India. It is not common for solar eclipse and lunar eclipse to occur in the same month. In such a situation, this is an interesting opportunity for those people who are interested in the events happening in the sky.
