<p>– Timing: On October 28, 2023, at around 11:31 p.m. Indian Standard Time (IST), the eclipse will start. On October 29, 2023, at 01:05 IST, the eclipse’s umbral phase will begin and terminate at 02:24 IST.</p>
<p>– Visibility in India: At midnight, the partial lunar eclipse will be visible from every location in India.</p>
<p>When Earth lies exactly between the Moon and the Sun, the Moon’s surface experiences the Earth’s shadow. This phenomenon is known as a lunar eclipse. The dispersion of sunlight through the Earth’s atmosphere, which blocks out shorter blue wavelengths and lets longer red wavelengths reach the Moon, is what causes the Moon to darken and take on a reddish tint during the eclipse.</p>
<p>On October 28, 2023, the Full Hunter’s Moon—a full moon that comes after the Harvest Moon—will experience a partial lunar eclipse. At around 4:14 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), the eclipse will peak, and it will conclude at approximately 6:26 p.m. EDT.</p>
<p>Regarding the legends and myths surrounding lunar eclipses, there are several superstitions and eclipse-related customs throughout many countries. Some prevalent myths include the notion that pregnant women should take extra care during an eclipse, abstaining from food and sleep during the eclipse, and bathing afterwards to cleanse oneself. It’s crucial to remember that these opinions could not have a scientific foundation and are often based on cultural and traditional customs.</p>
<p>Furthermore, it is untrue that seeing a lunar eclipse with the unaided eye may cause blindness. Unlike solar eclipses, which need specific eye protection to avoid eye injury, lunar eclipses may be safely seen with the unaided eye.</p>
<p>There is also no scientific basis for the notion that a wound won’t heal quickly or leave a permanent scar during a moon eclipse. You shouldn’t consider these superstitions as reality; they are only beliefs.</p>
