Solar Eclipse 2022: Date, Time
2022's first Surya Grahan (Solar Eclipse) is all set to take place on April 30
It will be the first of two partial solar eclipses in 2022; the second will occur on Oct. 25.
We won't see another total solar eclipse until 2023.
What is a solar eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens when, at just the right moment, the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth.
There are four types of solar eclipses: total, annular, partial and hybrid.
The Surya Grahan will begin at 12:15 pm and end at 4:07 pm. However, it will not be visible in India.
The eclipse reaches its maximum phase at 4:41 p.m. EDT (2041 GMT), when the axis of the moon’s shadow cone passes closest to Earth’s center, according to EarthSky.org.
Areas visible South/West South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Antarctica
The April 30 eclipse occurs just four days before the moon reaches apogee — its farthest point from Earth.
