Social media was flooded with memes and jokes on the superstitions around the solar eclipse.

As sky gazers and space enthusiasts in parts of the country witnessed the annular solar eclipse, social media was flooded with meme sand jokes on the superstitions lingering over the planetary phenomenon.

The annular phase was visible on Sunday morning from some places within a narrow corridor of northern part of the country (parts of Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttarakhand). Few prominent places within this narrow path are Dehradun, Kurukshetra, Chamoli, Joshimath, Sirsa, Suratgarh. It will be seen as a partial solar eclipse from the rest part of the country.

From stepping outside to eating during the eclipse, many have taken to social media with memes and jokes to express their feelings related to the myths and superstitions.

Take a look here:

A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth are aligned in a straight line or an almost straight configuration in a way that the moon blocks the sun’s rays from reaching the earth.

However, since the moon is farthest from the earth today, it fails to cover the sun completely and leaves out its rims to be visible, causing a ring of fire effect.
