The total lunar eclipse due on October 8th begins at 1.46 p.m. Sri Lanka Standard Time and will end up at 7.04 p.m.

Since this occurs mostly during day time for Sri Lanka only the latter part of this eclipse is visible as a partial lunar eclipse for a period of about 3 minutes from 6.00 p.m. to 6.03 p.m. with the moon rising from the eastern horizon.

Professor Chandana Jayaratne of Department of Physics, University of Colombo said the eclipse ends up at 7.04 p.m. with the moon leaving the penumbral part of the eclipse.

Sixteen days later, on October 24th there will be a partial solar eclipse too commencing from 1.08 a.m. Sri Lanka Standard Time.
