The Pradosham on October 24 is on Monday and therefore it is also known as Som Pradosham.

Pradosham as the name indicates is a period just before sunset and after sunset. Loosely the Pradosham period is between 1.5 hours before sunset and 1 hour after sunset.

Devotees fasting on the Pradosham day, break their fasting after the evening prayers.
