Dear Anon,
In the past, Chinese fear an eclipse. This was because, it means that the sun has been `swallowed up'. And the `world' became dark.
During the eclipse, they would use musical instruments and make sounds like clangs, beat the drums in the hope that the sun would `rise' again.
This was before Chinese astrologers had predicted and advised the Emperors of the forthcoming eclipse.
Once, it was known that the eclipse could be calculated and predicted, this `fear' of the sun got eaten up no longer worried the people.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil
