Types of lunar eclipse

Total lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, “completely” covering the Moon with its shadow. This takes place when the three of them are aligned to make a line. The Moon can also turn red during a total lunar eclipse, also called "Blood Moon".

Partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, but covers only a part of Moon, leaving the other part visible. This happens when the three of them are not precisely aligned.

Penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, and the outer part of the planet casts a faint shadow on the Moon. This happens when the three bodies are imperfectly aligned and usually this eclipse is mistaken as a full moon.

Beliefs about lunar eclipse: 

  • It is believed that cooked food deteriorates faster during the Chandra Grahan on Lunar eclipse, so it is advisable to not eat food during the time of the lunar eclipse. 
  • It is often said that the food eaten during the eclipse time would not give quality nutrients and would also lead to inertia.
  • Cooking is generally not advised during the eclipse or Chandra Grahan time.
  • Chandra Grahan is also not considered an auspicious time to perform holy rituals.
