Lunar Eclipse 2021 is a supermoon and an amazing rare event.

supermoon is an event of a Full Moon or New Moon occurring during the Moon’s nearest arrival to Earth on its perigee. It is the closest, brightest, and the biggest of all times.

The alignment of the Sun and the Moon causes an inadequate addition in tectonic activity, and the consequences of the Supermoon on Earth are insignificant. Scientists from NASA could not find any significant connection of the Super Moon to natural catastrophes. The combination of the Moon being at its nearest and Full Moon should not alter the internal force stability of the Earth as there are lunar tides daily.


  • Avoid using sharp objects during the eclipse.
  • Some people also consider fasting in India and Nepal.
  • Sutak is a span before the lunar eclipse to avoid any auspicious work. It usually nine hours before the eclipse starts and concludes with the eclipse.
