New Delhi, Oct 23: India is set to witness the last solar eclipse 2022 on December 25. It is going to be a partial solar eclipse.

According to NASA, a partial solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth but the Sun, Moon and Earth are not perfectly lined up. The Sun appears to have a dark shadow on only part of its surface.
