 The celebration of bonding between brothers and sisters ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is celebrated across India as well as in Nepal today.

Also marking this most auspicious day, Lunar Eclipse will also be seen today, after 9 years on the same day.


Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day according to the Hindu Calendar, during the monsoons (usually August), in India and Nepal.

 Raksha Bandhan not only marks the celebration of love and responsibility between brothers and sisters.

The Lunar Eclipse will start from the night of Monday, August 7, from 9:20 PM till morning of Tuesday, August 8, 2:20 AM.

The eclipse will be visible all over Asia, Europe and Africa.

Also, a partial lunar eclipse, which is called the penumbral part of the eclipse, will also be seen which will begin on Monday, August 7, 10:52 PM and last for merely two hours.

A penumbral or a partial lunar eclipse is a part of the eclipse that occurs when the Sun, the Moon and the Earth are in a straight line.

Due to this phenomenon, the light of the Sun is blocked by the Earth, stopping it from reaching the Moon.

Due to this, the moon becomes completely or partially invisible behind the Earth.
