First Solar Eclipse of 2022 will be Between April 30th and May 1st

In accordance with Pakistan Standard Time (PST), a partial solar eclipse will occur in the middle of the night between April 30 and May 1 of the year 2022. 

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department, the first solar eclipse of the year 2022 would not be seen in Pakistan.

People in southern South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans will be able to see a partial solar eclipse.

The Partial Solar Eclipse will begin at 23:45 PST on April 30, 2022, and the Maximum Eclipse will occur at 01:42 PST on May 1, 2022, with the eclipse ending at 03:38 PST on 01st May 2022.

In addition, the last solar eclipse of the year 2021, which occurred on December 04, was not visible in Pakistan.

South Australia, South Africa, South America, the Atlantic region, the Indian Ocean, and Antarctica were all able to see the solar eclipse, as were other parts of the world.

Observers in the Antarctica region were able to witness the entire celestial show in its entirety.

It is possible to see a tiny ring of sunshine around the solar disc during an annular eclipse because the Moon, which is passing between Earth and the Sun, is not quite close enough to our planet to totally cover the sun’s light.

In all cases, a solar eclipse happens around two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse, which occurs when the Moon slips into the Earth’s shadow. In total, nearly half of the Earth’s surface is visible during a lunar eclipse.
