Chandra Grahan 2023 Live Updates: Today, a rare coincidence is taking place as the lunar eclipse and Buddha Purnima are on the same day -May 5. There is also Vaishakh Purnima today which is very auspicious. The Chandra Grahan will start at 8.45 pm and end at 1:02 am on May 6. It is a penumbral lunar eclipse but won't be visible in India. It will be a relatively subtle astronomical event, as the Moon will only pass through the Earth's penumbral shadow. According to religious beliefs, sleeping, cooking or eating food, touching the idol of God, starting auspicious work, getting hair cut, etc. are prohibited during the eclipse period.

Last month on April 20, the first solar eclipse took place. If you are looking forward to see Chandra Grahan today, here's everything you need to know about its visibility.
