The moon will pass in front of the sun on Tuesday, causing a partial solar eclipse. This will be the last solar eclipse of 2022. This year’s second and final solar eclipse will only be visible from some areas of Earth, mainly parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. It will not be visible in the United States.
The Royal Observatory in Greenwich will host a livestream of the partial solar eclipse on their YouTube page. The livestream will begin at 9:05 GMT on Tuesday. According to the observatory, the stream will feature “detailed telescope footage and expert astronomy commentary” and will use the Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope housed at the Royal Observatory.
Where you are in the world will determine when the eclipse begins. For example, it will start at 8:58:20 Universal Time (GMT) over the Atlantic Ocean, which is 4:58 a.m. EDT. It will end at 9:01 a.m. EDT (1301 GMT).
Nowhere on Earth will have a total solar eclipse on Tuesday, Oct. 25. This is because the moon and the sun won’t be perfectly aligned. Instead, the sun will look like it has a big bite taken out of it.
The point of central eclipse is when the sun is covered the most by the moon as seen from Earth during an eclipse.
The center of the eclipse will be at its maximum over the North Pole, where the moon will cover 82% of the sun. This point is not stable and moves across Earth during an eclipse.
As the point of central eclipse moves away from the North Pole, observers in Russia will see around 80% of the sun covered by the moon. This level of solar coverage will drop to around 70% over China, 63% over Norway, and 62% over Finland.
The solar eclipse on Tuesday can only be seen from some parts of the world because the moon’s shadow is small.
If you want to see the partial solar eclipse, be sure to read our guide how to observe the sun safely. You need special eyewear to look at the sun because the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays can damage your eyes. You can make a pinhole camera at home to view the eclipse live.
