First Solar Eclipse Of 2022 Is In Days, Here's How And When To View It

The first eclipse of 2022 will occur later this week and will be visible from a variety of places around the globe.

This week, a partial solar eclipse will almost completely block out the Sun, as NASA confirmed that numerous sites worldwide will be able to see the first solar eclipse of 2022.

The first solar eclipse of 2022, according to NASA's database, will be a partial solar eclipse on April 30 at 2:45 p.m. EST. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, casting the moon's shadow on the Earth while the Sun is behind it.

The solar eclipse on April 30 will be a partial eclipse, which means that just a section of the Sun will be obscured by the moon's body. NASA believes that at the eclipse's maximum, 65 percent of the Sun will be obscured. Additionally, inhabitants of the United Kingdom and the United States will be unable to watch this upcoming event, since it will be visible only over portions of Antarctica, South America, the Pacific, and the Atlantic Ocean.
