Chandra Grahan in July 2009 – Chandragrahan – Lunar Eclipse

Chandra Grahan, a penumbral lunar eclipse, will take place on July 7, 2009. According to NASA, the Chandra Grahan will not be visible to the naked eye and will take place at moon rise in parts of Australia and at moon set in parts of Canada, United States, the Caribbean Islands and South America. The Chandra Grahan on July 7, 2009 will not be visible in India. If you need to know the time of the Grahan you can read it in this article.
Update: The next Chandra Grahan is on December 21, 2010 - You can find information in this latest article - Grahan December 21, 2010
The grahan will take place from 08:37 (UT) to 10:39 (UT) UT = universal time. The corresponding India time of the Grahan is from 1407 hrs to 1609 hrs on July 7th, 2009. Please note that it is not visible in India.

Most of the Hindu traditional calendars have not given any importance to the Chandra Grahan on July 7, 2009. This is because it is not visible to the naked eye and is only of academic interest.
Usually during a Chandra Grahan, a fast (Upvaas) is observed by certain communities in Hindu religion. The fast begins about 9 hours before the beginning of Chandra Grahan.
People also take a bath in cold water and chant mantras dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Shiva like the Ashtakshara Mantra or Mrityunjaya Mantra. This is done whenever Surya and Chandra are under the influence of Rahu.
But there is no need to observe any rituals during this Chandra Grahan as it is not of importance.
Please Note: We are getting several queries from Pregnant Women regarding this Grahan. You don't need to worry about this Grahan. It is only a partial eclipse and Hindu panchangs and calendars have ignored it. The grahan time is 08:37 GMT to 10:39 GMT. To know the time in your region just add or subtract from GMT. For example for India add +5:30 and the corresponding India Time is 14:07 to 16:09 hrs. More details about time can be found in this article.

  3. This Chandragrahan is not attributable to a typical KETHU. That may be the reason why PANCHANGAM does not give any importance to it.
