Last Solar Eclipse Of Year On Next Day Of Diwali, Know How It Will Affect Govardhan Puja

New Delhi: Diwali is on 24 October and the last solar eclipse of the year will be on the next day of Diwali i.e. 25 October. This is a partial eclipse and will be visible at many places in the country. 

Due to this the Govardhan Puja of Diwali has been postponed by a day. It will also be special from religious point of view. The last solar eclipse was on 30 April, but it was not visible in the country. 

According to astronomers, the next major solar eclipse visible from India will be on May 21, 2031. Which will be an annular eclipse. Three years later, on March 20, 2034, a total solar eclipse will be visible from India.

Will Be Better Visible In The Northern And Western Parts Of The Country: Astronomer Devi Prasad Duari of Birla Planetarium, Kolkata says that this eclipse will be better visible in the northern and western parts of the country. At the same time, it will not be visible in the eastern parts of the country, because the sunset will have already happened in those places. 

Apart from this, this celestial phenomenon will also be visible in parts of Europe, North Africa, Middle East and West Asia.

Sutak Will Remain Throughout The Day: Although this is an astronomical event, but from the point of view of religion, this solar eclipse will be special, because this time it is falling on the next day of Diwali. Due to the beginning of the eclipse from 4 pm in India, its Sutak will start 12 hours earlier, that is, from 4 am of 25 October. So Govardhan Puja will be held on 26 October instead of 25.
