Lunar Eclipse November 2022: On November 8, India and a few other countries will see the total Lunar Eclipse, also known as Chandra Grahan. This eclipse will occur a few weeks after a partial Solar Eclipse. Learn about the stages of Chandra Grahan in India as well as which Indian towns will see the final eclipse of 2022.
On November 8, 2022, there will be one final total lunar eclipse, popularly known as Chandra Grahan in India. The following complete lunar eclipse, which will take place on March 14, 2025, won’t happen for another three years. The Blood Moon is another name for this event.
However, during this time, we will be able to see partial and penumbral eclipses. The total lunar eclipse will be visible across North and Central America, as well as in Ecuador, Colombia, the western half of Venezuela, and Peru, according to NASA.
The Moon will set in Puerto Rico shortly after totality begins. As well as Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to see the eclipse. Additionally, Alaskans and Hawaiians will have the chance to see each stage of the Eclipse.
The partial Lunar Eclipse will be visible from the majority of India, while the whole Lunar Eclipse will only be seen in the eastern regions of the country. You may see the total eclipse in Kohima, Agartala, Guwahati, Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Siliguri, Patna, and Ranchi. Other cities in the West, South, and North of India will also be able to see the partial eclipse, including Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Nagpur, Srinagar, Noida, Gurugram, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Chennai, Surat, Pune, Jaipur, Lucknow, Madurai, and Udaipur.
From the moment of moonrise, everyone will be able to see the event. The partial and total eclipses’ first stages, though, won’t be seen in India because they both start when the Moon is below the horizon there.
At 02:40 and 03:47, respectively, the partial and total lunar eclipses will start. At 4:29 p.m., the maximum lunar eclipse will be visible. At 5:11 PM, the entire Lunar Eclipse will be over, and at 6:19 AM, the Moon will rise. The total phase’s duration is 1 hour and 24 minutes, and the half phase’s duration is 3 hours and 38 minutes.
Sutak Time for the Lunar Eclipse: According to Drik Panchang, the Sutak Time on November 8 runs from 09:36 am until 06:18 pm. It also includes the Sutak schedules for young children, the elderly, and the sick. On November 8, it will go from 3:11 PM until 6:18 PM. Sutak is regarded by Hindu tradition as an unlucky period prior to the Chandra Grahan.
How Will the Eclipse Be Viewed?
A Lunar Eclipse can be seen without specialised equipment, according to NASA. However, use binoculars or a telescope and go to a place away from strong lights for the optimum viewing circumstances. Visit the NASA website to view the final lunar eclipse of 2022.
The Moon crosses into Earth’s shadow during a Lunar Eclipse when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are all in alignment. The Moon enters the Umbra, the darkest region of the Earth’s shadow, during a complete lunar eclipse, where it turns crimson. As Blood Moons, these eclipses are also referred to.
