People in parts of southern South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific and Southern Oceans will be able to see a partial eclipse of the Sun just before and during sunset on Saturday, April 30, 2022.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between both the Sun and the Earth, casting shadows on the Earth and obstructing the Sun’s light in some areas. Because the Moon and Sun are not properly aligned during a partial solar eclipse, the Moon does not fully cover the Sun.
The Sun will be partially eclipsed as it sets in the west on the evening of April 30 for anyone with clear skies in Chile, Argentina, most of Uruguay, western Paraguay, and Bolivia.
The eclipse will also be noticeable together across parts of Antarctica’s northwestern coast, in the Atlantic just across South America’s southeastern coast, including the Falkland Islands, and in most of the South Pacific and Southern Ocean.

If you want to face the Sun while observing a partial solar eclipse, you should wear solar viewing or eclipse glasses for the duration of the eclipse. Solar viewing or eclipse glasses are NOT ordinary sunglasses; ordinary sunglasses are not suitable for viewing the Sun.
According to reports, the upcoming solar eclipse will be partial, and therefore will not be noticeable in India. In India, the Sutak period will not be witnessed.
