Time of Solar Eclipse 2022 in India, Solar Eclipse in India 2022: A partial eclipse of the Sun or Surya Grahan October 25 marks the last solar eclipse of the year. The eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, North Africa and much of West and Central Asia. Most of India should be able to witness the solar eclipse, except some parts in the northeast.
During a solar eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, preventing some of the sunlight from reaching our planet. There are typically three types of solar eclipses – total solar eclipses, annular eclipses, and partial solar eclipses. During a total eclipse, the Moon completely covers the Sun. During an annular solar eclipse, the Moon does not completely cover the Sun, but leaves a visible rim. During a partial solar eclipse, like the one on October 25, the Sun will be partially obscured by the Moon as it passes in front of it.
According to the time and date, the partial solar eclipse will start at 14:28 IST and the maximum eclipse will be at 16:30. The table below shows when the eclipse will begin and reach its maximum in various Indian cities.
An eclipse never comes alone. A solar eclipse usually happens about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. Today’s solar eclipse will be followed by a lunar eclipse, which is scheduled for November 8. Also, don’t worry if the eclipse is not visible from your city.
