Today (Tuesday), the second and last solar eclipse of the year 2022 will occur, according to Pakistan Metrological Department (PMD) authorities.

The solar eclipse will only be partially visible in Pakistan, but it will be completely visible in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and West Asia, according to the PMD.

The solar eclipse will take place in Pakistan from 1:58 to 6:02 PM, with the maximum eclipse happening around 4 PM.

“A complete eclipse of the sun will occur at 4 p.m., with the largest circumference and observation occurring in Peshawar, up to 65.2%, along with 64.5% in Islamabad, 59.7% in Quetta, 60.7% in Lahore, and 50% in Karachi,” according to the Met office.

Astronomers have advised individuals who intend to observe the eclipse firsthand to wear special eye protection glasses since direct viewing might injure the eyes.

Describe the solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves in front of the Sun and the Earth, casting a shadow across it.

When the Moon totally blocks out the Sun and a portion of the Earth is entirely dark, this is known as a total solar eclipse.

The moon’s shadow won’t touch Earth at any time during today’s partial solar eclipse, according to a statement from the Paris Observatory.

In Kazakhstan, the moon will be exposed to 82 percent of the sun, but this won’t be enough to completely block off the sun, according to Florent Deleflie, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory.

According to him, darkness cannot be perceived until at least 95% of the sun is obscured.
