A solar eclipse usually occurs when a part of the earth is overshadowed by the moon, which completely or partially blocks sunlight. This happens when the sun, moon and earth are aligned. Such an arrangement coincides with the new moon indicating that the lunar eclipse is closest to the plane.
Eclipse is a natural phenomenon. However, in some ancient and modern cultures, solar eclipses are attributed to supernatural causes or are considered bad omens. A total solar eclipse can be terrifying for those who are unaware of its astronomical description, as the sun disappears during the day and the sky turns black in a few minutes.

The last solar eclipse of the year will take place on December 14th.
Solar Eclipse 2020 will begin at 07:03 pm and conclude at 12:23 pm. The last solar eclipse will be for about five hours.
Every year, there are only 2 to 5 solar eclipses, and what is significant here is that each one appears for a limited time. Most calendar years have only 2 solar eclipses. And, the maximum number of solar eclipses that can occur in the same year is 5, but this is a very rare sight.
