A lunar eclipse occurs when Sun, Earth and Moon are in a single line with Earth in the middle. If this occurs, the Moon (or part of it) does not receive light from the Sun because it is in the shadow of the Earth, and thus the Moon becomes invisible even though there would normally have been a full moon. However, some of the light is refracted through the Earth's atmosphere to the Moon. This in Gujarati is called Chandra Grahan.
The timings (BST) are as follows:
One must stop consuming food from 17.07 and stop consuming water from 23.07 on Sunday 27th September.
