Lunar eclipse of February 10/11, 2017

A penumbral Lunar Eclipse would occur on February 10 and 11, 2017. It would be the first Lunar Eclipse out of the two lunar eclipses in 2017.

As it is penumbral eclipse it would not be considered for any religious activities by Hindus. For eclipse watchers also it would not be a significant event as the moon eclipse would hardly be visible through naked eyes. This penumbral eclipse would not be complete as the penumbral shadow of the earth would cover only 98% of the moon during the maximum of the eclipse.

The penumbral eclipse would be visible from Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and South America.

None of the eclipse would be visible from Australia.

Although, the eclipse would be visible in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Mauritius and Singapore but none of the religious activities which are observed during Lunar eclipse would be followed.

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.
