Only a few hours to the partial eclipse of the Sun, the first of 2022. The phenomenon is expected to start at 20.45 Italian and it will therefore be impossible to observe it from Italy, where the Sun will have already set. The partial eclipse should reach its maximum about two hours later, when in Italy it will be 22.41, to end 37 minutes after midnight.
However, there are very few places from which you can see our star partially darken. In fact, it will be possible to observe a coverage of more than half of the solar disk only from a point in the Southern Ocean roughly halfway between Tierra del Fuego (South America) and the Antarctic Peninsula. From South America, the partial eclipse will be visible above all from Chile and Argentina and to a lesser extent from Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.
We will have to wait until October 25 to be able to observe another solar eclipse, the second and last one of 2022 and also this partial one. It will be visible from Europe, Western Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
