Today's eclipse is not a full eclipse, but an annular eclipse, which means that the moon will not be able to hide the sun completely and the 'colour of fire' will be visible in a circle. The edges will be bright.
This unusual and historic solar eclipse will be radically different from the eclipse that took place in August 1999 due to 'albedo effect'.
During the eclipse, people are advised not to look at the sun with a normal eye because it can cause permanent damage to the eye or even vision.

They believed that a big snake was eating the moon that needed to be stopped by a noise.
In addition, some believe that pregnant women should not go out during the eclipse and stay away from sharp objects.
One of these ways is that germs come in during the eclipse, so all food items are covered or kept in the refrigerator.
On such occasions, a general holiday is also announced in some countries.
Along with this, people also associate life and death with the eclipse, so special worship is also performed on this occasion and animals are sacrificed or there are charity and charity.
