Partial solar eclipse is coming, but in Italy it will be live – aerospace and astronomy

The first solar partial eclipse of 2022 is just a few hours away. The event is expected to start at 20.45 in Italy, so it is not possible to observe it from Italy where the sun has already set. The partial eclipse should reach its maximum about two hours later, in Italy it will be 22.41, ending 37 minutes after midnight.

However, there are some places where you can see that our star is somewhat darker. In fact, more than half of the solar disk can only be observed from a point between the Dierra del Fuego (South America) and the Antarctic Peninsula in the Southern Ocean. Partial eclipses are visible from South America, Chile and Argentina, and partly from Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

We will have to wait until October 25 to see the second and last solar eclipse of 2022 and this partial solar eclipse. It is known from Europe, West Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
