Every year, between four and seven eclipses occur. Solar eclipses occur when the line of sight toward the Moon intersects with the line of sight toward the Sun, putting our satellite in a new moon phase. The first solar eclipse of the year 2022 is approaching; it will occur on Saturday, April 30th, at 22.28 UT, when the month’s second new moon will appear. According to the National Institute of Geophysics, the partial eclipse will begin at 18.45 UT in the Pacific Ocean to the south and end at 22.38 UT in the Pacific Ocean near Chile’s coast.
The partial solar eclipse of 2022 will be seen this Saturday between 20:45 and 00:30 hrs. It will be visible from the south of South America and the Pacific Ocean. This solar eclipse will be visible to divide Chile, Argentina, and parts of Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, and Brazil. Also in the Falkland Islands, and in part of the South Pacific ocean and the Antarctic ocean.
To see the eclipse, all you have to do is look at the sun, whether or not you have a homologated filter or eclipse glasses. These lenses must be homologated by the European Community for Solar Observation and used in accordance with the instructions printed on them.
If you don’t have this lens filter, we can see the Sun if we look at his picture projected on a screen or in the shadows.
