Lunar eclipse of August 07/08, 2017

A partial Lunar Eclipse would occur on August 07 and 08, 2017. It would be the second and the last Lunar Eclipse out of the two lunar eclipses in 2017.

As it is partial eclipse of magnitude 0.25, only the one fourth of the Moon would be covered by the Earth's Umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. The portion of the moon inside the Umbral shadow will only be illuminated by sunlight refracted through the Earth's atmosphere and having a reddish hue.

The partial eclipse would be visible from Asia, Africa, Australia, most of Europe and some eastern parts of South America.

None of the eclipse would be visible from North America and Greenland.

The partial Lunar eclipse would be visible in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Mauritius and Singapore.
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 maximum of Lunar Eclipse occurs. Hence Penumbral Phase as well as Umbral 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.
