A solar eclipse usually blocks part or all of the sunlight when a part of the earth is submerged in the shadow sent by the moon. This occurs when the sun, moon and earth are aligned. Such alignment indicates that the Moon is closest to the eclipse plane with the new moon.
An eclipse is a natural phenomenon. However, in some ancient and modern cultures, solar eclipses were said to be for supernatural reasons or considered bad omens. A total solar eclipse frightens people who do not know its astronomical explanation because the sun seems to disappear during the day and in a few minutes the sky looks dark.
