Explore Is Called, The Sky, and more!

Hindu astronomers, from ca300 AD,  knew that an eclipse can occur only when the Sun and Moon are close to the point in their respective orbits where the ecliptic path of the Sun crosses the path of the Moon. In order to predict an eclipse, they kept track of the location in the sky of the celestial objects checking the proximity of the Sun or Moon to the "nodes"= imaginary points="shadow planets"= mythical characters; the ascending node is called Rahu and the descending node is called Ketu.

Story of Rahu & Ketu, the Hindu shadow planets, and their connection to eclipses.

Hymn in Rig Veda is spoken to Surya, the Hindu sun god:  The rays that are his banners ..shining over mankind like blazing fires/O Sun You cross heaven & the vast realm of space, O Sun/ Seven bay mares carry you in the chariot/The Sun has yoked the seven splendid daughters of the chariot."" As is found in the Greco-Roman Calendar the days of the week in the modern Hindu calendar are named for the 7 visible planets& they are ordered exactly as they are in the Greco-Roman Calendar

Surya the Hindu sun god is depicted with horses and chariot on temple carvings.
