This will be the last eclipse of the year, and it’s the Lunar Eclipse 2023 on 28th October we are talking about. The same month, we witnessed an Annular Solar Eclipse on 14th October this year.
Unfortunately, this partial eclipse will overtake an immensely important celestial event of great religious value, the Sharad Purnima 2023.
Let’s have a quick look at the visibility, timing and other details associated with the Lunar Eclipse.

Visibility around the World
The entire Asian subcontinent, Europe, and Australia will witness the full Lunar eclipse. Whereas some parts of South and North America would observe the event during the moonrise.
Visibility in India and Nepal
Fortunately for the stargazers and astrology enthusiasts, this Lunar Eclipse shall be visible in India and Nepal during the night. We really missed the opportunity with the previous Solar Eclipse, but this one’s equally exciting.
The date for the eclipse is 28-29th October 2023, and in the Nepali Calendar, the date coincides with 11th Kartik 2080.
The fact that the eclipse and Sharad Purnima are happening at the same time is likely to impact everything around the globe.
Whether you like it or not, people in India and Nepal would have to face the Sutak Kaal for the eclipse. But the good news is that the eclipse shall occur at night and hence most of this timing shall pass away while you sleep.
The Sutak Kaal for this eclipse begins at around 2:55 PM on 28th October and shall last till 2:37 AM on 29th October.
Follow all the precautionary methods and the Sutak ritual for a safe and delightful experience with the last Lunar Eclipse of the year.
