There was a recent Lunar Eclipse (Chandra Grahaṇa) - the first for the year 2021.
The full eclipse began at 11.11 am UTC, which was around 4.41 pm IST. But the total lunar eclipse was not visible in India.
Whenever an eclipse is said to be "visible" in a certain place, it's a practice for the people of that area to follow all the "rules and protocols" of a sūtaka and other practices. Like Temples closing their doors, people not going out throughout the eclipse duration, and not consuming food, etc..
However, many a times, the eclipse is not even visible in several areas. Like this eclipse cited above. This eclipse wasn't observable from India.
Question - Does the same "rules and protocols" apply to such kind of eclipses too, which are not visible from an "observer's place"? Please give either scripturally sourced answer or the views of "authoritative personalities".
