Year 2013 will witness five eclipses, at least two out of which will be visible in India.

A partial lunar eclipse on April 25 and a penumbral lunar eclipse on October 18 would be seen from the country.

He said, besides, a penumbral lunar eclipse would occur on May 25, an annular solar eclipse on May 10 and a hybrid solar eclipse on November 3 - which would not be visible from India.
