2019 is really special as Lunar Eclipse also known as Chandra Grahan and Guru Purnima will take place on the same day July 16 after 149 years. The Moon should be about half-covered by the Earth’s umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. This is the last lunar eclipse of this year and the next lunar eclipse will take place on May 26, 2021. India would have a special impact as it comes with Guru Purnima.
Many parts of the world, including most regions of Asia and Europe, Africa, Australia, and South America will get to experience partial Lunar Eclipse.
A partial lunar eclipse will be visible in India on July 16 and 17 nights. Lunar Eclipse will start at 3.55 pm and ends around 4.30 am. Hindus refrain from performing any puja on the day of lunar eclipse since no auspicious practice is undertaken during the eclipse period. But, in case you were planning to perform Guru Purnima Puja, you can very well do it before 4 pm. The Auspicious time of Guru Purnima will start at 1:30 am and will be concluded at 4:00 pm on July 18, 2019.
