Combustion of planet is very significant event as per Vedic astrology. Every year, for few days planets are not visible in the sky as they become very close to the Sun. These days are known as Asta, Lope, Moudhya and Moudyami.
Most auspicious ceremonies, especially Marriage Ceremony is prohibited during the combustion of Venus and Jupiter.
On this page, we have given date and time of Mangal combustion. As per Surya Siddhanta approximate timings of Asta and Udaya can be calculated based on angular separation. For Mangal Lope Surya Siddhanta suggests angular separation of 17° on both sides of the Sun.
However, we have used modern algorithms to precisely predict the time and date of Mangal combustion based on the location. Combustion timings given on this page are calculated based on geo location of the observer.
