The Lunar eclipse Tharpana   has to be done   towards  the end of  Chandra Grahana. Since the Grahana   ends   on 28-7-2018, Most of the  Panchangas   suggest that tharpana   can be done   after  bath   first thing in the morning on 28th  July  2018  Before doing Tharpana   we have to take bath    and after  the end  of  the eclipse  we have to again take bath.(if Sradha  is on POurnamasi thithi  on 27th, it should be done only on 28-7--2018).Hindus believe that  if the  moon sets before release  of eclipse , till it rises again  no food should be taken
