The Sun looks as if a giant bite has been removed, but only from part of the planet.
On Tuesday (October 25), the Earth will experience a partial solar eclipse, visible from parts of Europe, western Asia, and northeastern Africa. Skywatchers from other parts of the world such as B. America may miss the event in person, but you can watch it live online for free.
The partial solar eclipse will begin on October 4th at 4:58 am EDT (0858 GMT). The 25th day of the Moon’s passage in front of the Sun ends around 9:01 AM EDT (1301 GMT).
Virtual Telescope Project 2.0 will allow an astronomy enthusiast to view his October 25th partial solar eclipse from the comfort of his home (or office). The eclipse was filmed in Rome, Italy and can be streamed live online for free (opens in new tab).
The mobile observatory team at the Time and Date website also live-streamed the partial eclipse, and coverage of it is available on his YouTube channel (opens in a new tab). A solar eclipse occurs when the moon slides between the earth and the sun, casting shadows on planets and blocking some or all of the sunlight. The partial solar eclipse on October 25th will be his second partial solar eclipse in 2022, with the last occurring on his April 30th, sweeping the Southeast Pacific and southern South America.
Neither a partial nor a total solar eclipse can be seen from anywhere on Earth. This is because the Moon is much smaller than the Earth and its shadow is only a few hundred kilometers wide. In other words, it can only hit part of the Earth’s surface at a time. The maximum solar disk coverage on October 25 is 82% at what is known as the “central eclipse point.” This is the place on Earth where an imaginary line connecting the center of the Sun and the center of the Moon meets the Earth’s surface.
During the October 25th eclipse, the central eclipse point is at the North Pole. As you move from here, less and less of the solar disk is eclipsed in areas farther from this point. In Russia 80% of the sun is eclipsed and this shaded area is reduced to 70% in China, 63% in Norway and 62% in Finland.
This eclipse is not a total eclipse anywhere on Earth. Because the Moon and Sun are not perfectly aligned during the Event, the Moon will not completely cover the Sun anywhere on Earth.
If any skywatcher misses this opportunity to see a partial solar eclipse in person or online, he should set a reminder for April 20, 2023, when the next total solar eclipse will occur.
