The fourth and final Chandra Grahan 2020 will be a penumbral one when the Moon will turn a shade darker for a few hours. The Chandra Grahan 2020 November (Full Moon) is also called the Beaver Moon Eclipse in many parts of the world. Full Moons, particularly in Europe and America, have many names linked to the cultural and social landscape. In North America, the November Full Moon is called the Beaver Moon since the beaver trapping season would start around this time.
The November full Moon is also called the Frosty Moon or the Oak Moon in some countries. A Chandra Grahan (lunar eclipse 2020) is a celestial event that occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow. There are three types of lunar eclipses – total, partial, and penumbral. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon. Though this penumbral eclipse will be the longest one of the year, it won’t be visible in India.

If you wish to follow “Sutak” (period of non-participation), then it will start some hours before 1:00 pm. According to Hindu beliefs, people do not do anything auspicious during the eclipse hours. They do not eat anything either. On December 14, 2020, we will experience the last solar eclipse, and the next the Lunar eclipse will be on May 26, 2021.
