The lunar eclipse has been fascinated the mankind for a long. The ancient history has filled with myths stories about solar and lunar eclipses. A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned, with Earth between the other two.
