Stanita (स्तनित) refers to the “roaring of clouds”, according to the Bṛhatsaṃhitā (chapter 5), an encyclopedic Sanskrit work written by Varāhamihira mainly focusing on the science of ancient Indian astronomy astronomy (Jyotiṣa).—Accordingly, “Lunar and solar eclipses terminate in ten ways [...] If, within the said period [i.e., seven days], there should occur any meteoric fall, the ministers will die; if clouds of various hues should appear, mankind will suffer from various fears; if clouds should begin to roar [i.e., stanita], there will be miscarriage of pregnancy; if lightning should appear, rulers and tusked animals will suffer. [...]”.
