Ancient Solar Eclipse Myths from All Over the World

Subscribe to 93.1 KISS FM on

Solar eclipses were thought to be evil omens and different cultures across the world had different takes on what was happening to the celestial bodies in our sky.

The upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017 will have many looking up at the sky come midday but there are several myths across the world that explain what was happening during a solar eclipse.

I remember that my older relatives used to say that a pregnant woman should never walk outside during an eclipse and that pregnant women should have some sort of protective metal over their bellies for protection from the child being born with a birth defect or of damaging the pregnancy itself.

While there is no actual fact or evidence that any of these folklores are true – these are some of the most interesting myths from different cultures surrounding an eclipse.
