Hyderabad witnessed a unique celestial event "Zero Shadow Day" at 12:12 pm. Several Hyderabad residents posted videos and pictures on their social media handles when there was no shadow from sunlight. The sun reaches its highest point in the sky resulting in the reduction of the length of the shadow. When we stand on this shadow, our own shadow becomes invisible, hence the term "Zero Shadow". The actual phenomenon only lasts a fraction of a second, but its effect can be seen for up to a minute and a half.
