There will be a lunar eclipse on April 4th visible to Sri Lanka with the moon rising from the eastern horizon around 6.18 p.m. and till 7.15 p.m.

The eclipse begins at 2.31 p.m. Sri Lanka Standard Time and will end up at 8.29 p.m.  Since this occurs mostly during day time for Sri Lanka only the latter part of this eclipse is visible to us as a partial lunar eclipse.   

After 7.15 p.m. with the moon entering into the penumbra - the less dark shadow of the Earth, no eclipse would visible except little dimming of the moon light.
