Lunar eclipse of April 25/26, 2013
A partial Lunar Eclipse would occur on April 25 and 26, 2013 and it would be the first out of three Lunar Eclipses which would occur in 2013. The eclipse would be visible from Eastern Europe, Eastern Africa, Central Asia and Western Australia. The eastern parts of South America will experience moonrise with the eclipse already in progress. None of the eclipse would be visible in North America.
Only a tiny silver of the Moon would be covered by the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. Hence it would not be a spectacular event for the eclipse chasers.
About Lunar Eclipse Data
If Lunar Eclipse starts before midnight but ends after midnight i.e. it covers two different dates on Gregorian calendar then the chosen Eclipse Day is when Umbral phase starts hence Penumbral Phase might start before midnight i.e. on the previous day.
Moonrise and Moonset moments are corrected for Parallax and this correction gives better timings for the Eclipse sighting.
Hinduism and Lunar Eclipse
Unless Lunar Eclipse is visible to the naked eye, it is of no significance to Hindus and Hindus don't consider it for any religious activities. Penumbral Lunar Eclipses are not visible to the naked eye hence no rituals related to Chandra Grahan should be observed. If Lunar Eclipse is visible during Umbral Phase then only it should be considered for religious activities. Most Hindu Calendars don't list Penumbral Eclipses.
If Chandra Grahan is not visible in your city but it is visible some city near to that then you should not observe it. Precautions which are advised during Sutak should be taken only if Chandra Grahan is visible in your city. Chandra Grahan is considered even if the Moon is not visible due to cloudy weather or some other weather conditions.
