It’s always said that your shadow is your most trustworthy travel companion. It never leaves your side. But that’s not always true. Well, exactly! You can get rid of your shadow for few minutes.

The “Zero Shadow Day” is a phenomenon which occurs twice in a year; it takes place when the sun is at a 90- degree angle to the Earth’s surface or when the sun is just overhead. This moment makes the person’s or any object's shadow completely disappear for few minutes.

Fascinating isn’t it?

So, soon get ready to experience this phenomenon!

As, this Zero Shadow Day is expected to occur in various cities of Maharashtra from May 6 up to May 20, 2017.

Starting with Kolhapur, the city will observe this phenomenon on May 6, thereby followed by Sangli on May 7, Karad on May 8, Chiplun on May 9, Solapur, Satara and Dapoli on May 10, Wai on May 11, Ausa, Barshi and Baramati on May 12, Pune, Karjat and Latur on May 13 and Lonavala on May 14.

Similarly, the Mumbaikars will also experience zero shadow phenomenon on May 14, while Nanded and Ahmednagar will observe it on May 15 and 16, Shani Shingnapur on May 17, Sangamner will mostly observe it on May 18, Jalna and Nasik will experience it on May 19 and 20, respectively.

“A zero shadow day can only be witnessed by those living between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. They will be the ones who will be experiencing this moment in between May 6 to 20. As this phenomenon particularly takes place twice a year when the sun is directly overhead and your shadow disappears for those few minutes,” Mahesh Palawat, Chief Meteorologist at Skymet Weather, stated.

According to the Skymet Weather, the dry and humid weather conditions will continue to prevail over Pune and Mumbai, for the next few days.

Meanwhile, during this period of time, the day temperatures will remain above the 30- degree mark in the various cities of Maharashtra.

So, Puneites and Mumbaikars get ready to brace yourself to experience again the “Zero Shadow” moment for few minutes in a broad daylight.
