HOW THE ECLIPSES OF SUN AND MOON ARE CALCULATED IN OLDEN DAYS?
Not only the ancient Indians, but also ancient civilizations like Chinese, Egyptian, Mesapadomia and the South American Tribes have were the developed people in calculating the eclipses.
The shadow of earth falling on the moon is known as ‘Monar Eclipse’. This is further explained that when the Sun, Earth and the Moon are falling in a straight line, ‘Monar Eclipse’ occurs. The path in which the earth is rounding up the Sun is known as ‘Solar-path’. The path, in which the moon is rounding up the Sun, is bending 5degrees apart from the Solar-Path and cut it in 2 places. If the Sun and the Moon come exactly straight to that point, ‘Monar Eclipse’ occurs. If that cutting exists anywhere other than that point, they will not come on a straight line and the eclipse will not also occur.
The ancient Indian Astronauts calculated the Degrees with the use of the instruments like ‘Y’ shaped ‘ Yasti Yanthra’ by this way they found out that the sun and the moon will reach the same position after 6,585.3 days. If the eclipse occurs today, similar eclipse will occur after 6,583.3 days. As the eclipse will occur after 6,585.3 days for each planet, the list of eclipses can be calculated. By this way the eclipses which will occur, in future can be calculated.
