From where will the solar eclipse be visible?

The eclipse will be visible from the south and southwest of South America, the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and most of the landmass of Antarctica. Experts explain that it will not be visible from India and the United States because it will happen during the day when the moon itself will not be present in the Indian sky.

The partial eclipse will begin around 6:45 PM universal time, which will be 12:15 PM IST on May 1. The maximum for India is around 02:11 on May 1 and ends at 04:07. Because it will be night, no one will be able to see the cosmic event.

When will India experience its first solar and lunar eclipse of 2022?

India may witness the next partial solar eclipse on October 25 and the partial lunar eclipse on November 8.

What causes a solar and lunar eclipse?

A solar eclipse occurs on a new Monday when it comes between the Earth and the sun. Then it partially or completely blocks the sun from the earth for some time. A lunar eclipse occurs on a full moon night when the cosmic satellite passes through Earth’s shadow.
