Chandra Grahan on 19 October 2013 is a Prachchaya Chandra Grahanam (Penumbral lunar eclipse). This is the last Chandra Grahan of three chandragrahanams in 2013.

This Chandra Grahan will be visible from the Americas (for the end), Europe, Africa, and most of Asia (the beginning of the eclipse will be visible in east Asia). The western part of the Philippines (including western Luzon and Palawan) can see the penumbral eclipse at moonset.

The Prachchaya Chandra Grahan (Tejoheena Chandragrahanam) will occur on Ashwin Purnima (Kojagari Purnima / Sharad Purnima). It occurs in Mesha Rashi and Ashwini Nakshatra. The total duration of this Ketu grastha Chandragrahan is 239 minutes (3 hours and 59 minutes).

Penumbral lunar eclipse will end with Sun rise on 19th October 2013. Moon will be seen next day but with less light.

Note: Those who have beliefs about Lunar Eclipse and its effects can follow the rituals associated with it.
