Eurasia is about to see an 82% partial eclipse of the Sun
Parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia will shortly experience a partial solar eclipse as 2022’s second “eclipse season” gets underway.
On Tuesday, October 25, 2022, a partial solar eclipse will be visible from Europe, northeast Africa, and central Asia.
London will have a peak eclipse of the Sun of 15% at 10:59 local time, with Paris at 13% at 12:02, Berlin at 32% at 12:13, Helsinki at 54% at 13:21, and Rome at 15% at 12:21.
The point of maximum eclipse will be in Siberia, Russia where 82% of the Sun will be eclipsed by the Moon.
A partial solar eclipse can only safely be viewed through solar filters, typically a pair of solar eclipse glasses.
You can check exactly what you will see where you are – as well as obtain exact eclipse timings – from a special eclipse page on timeanddate.com
You can also watch the event streamed live from wherever there is clear weather via the YouTube channels of both timeanddate.com and London’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich.
The final eclipse event of the year will occur on November 7/8, 2022 when a total lunar eclipse is visible to those in North and South America, the Pacific, Japan, and Asia-Pacific.
