Chandra Grahan is the eclipsing of the Moon. The Moon actually has no light of its own but shines by sunlight reflected from its surface. The Moon orbits Earth about once every 29 and half days and as it circles our planet, the lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow. This phenomenon occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned exactly or very closely with the Earth in the middle.
