Solar eclipse guide 2022: When, where & how to see them

There are two partial solar eclipses in 2022. The first partial solar eclipse occurred on Apr. 30 and was visible from parts of South America, Antarctica, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The next partial solar eclipse will occur on Oct. 25, and will be visible over Europe, western Asia and northeast Africa.

A solar eclipse occurs when the new moon, which is otherwise invisible, makes a rare appearance by crossing in front of the sun’s face, slowly creating the appearance of a “bite” taken from the sun. This continues until the moon fully or partially blocks the sun’s disk.
