In case Ashtami Tithi and Rohini nakshatra do not get over before Sunset, then fast can be easily broken during the day time when either of them gets over. Otherwise it is better to wait for breaking the fast.   On the basis of concluding time of the Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshtra, the fast may continue for completely two days.  As per the Hindu text Dharmasindhu, devotees unable to follow both the fasts, then the fast may be concluded on the next day after sunrise.
