Solar Eclipse 2022 Time in India, Solar Eclipse in India 2022: The partial solar eclipse or Surya Grahan on October 25 marks the last solar eclipse of the year. The eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Northern Africa and large parts of western and central Asia. Most of India should be able to view the solar eclipse, apart from some parts in the Northeast.

During a solar eclipse, the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, stopping some of the Sun’s light from reaching our planet. Typically, there are three kinds of solar eclipses—total solar eclipse, annular eclipse and partial solar eclipse. During a total eclipse, the Moon will completely cover the Sun. During an annular solar eclipse, the Moon will not fully cover the Sun but will leave an edge visible. During a partial solar eclipse, like the one happening on October 25, the Sun will be partly covered by the Moon as it passes in front of it.

An eclipse never comes alone. Typically, a solar eclipse happens around two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. Today’s solar eclipse will be followed by a lunar eclipse that is scheduled to happen on November 8. Also, don’t worry if the eclipse is not visible from your city. You can watch it through the live stream below.

Eclipse visible in India

The eclipse is now visible in many parts of India. Do remember that looking at the Sun directly during an eclipse is as unsafe as looking at it during a normal sunny day. Use specially-made eclipse glasses to look at the Sun. Sunglasses are not a replacement for these glasses. When using eclipse glasses, make sure that they comply to the ISO 12312-2 safety standards.

Ancient eclipse records

Around 1200 BC, scribes in Anyang in China recorded eclipses on oxen’ shoulder blades and tortoise shells, called oxen bones, according to NASA. “The Sun has been eaten, says on of the eclipse records. In the 1980s and 1990s, astronomers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory studied these records to research changes in our planet’s rotation. 

The eclipses studied for this research occurred in 1226 BC, 1198 BC, 1172 BC, 1163 BC, and 1161 BC. If the Earth was rotating at the same speed it is now, these eclipses should have happened thousands of kilometres away from Anyang, according to NASA. Based on this, scientists concluded that the rotation of the Earth had slowed by 47-thousands of a second per day in the last 3,200 years.

Oldest recorded eclipse

According to NASA, the oldest human record of a solar eclipse dates back to November 30, 3340 BCE. This can be seen from a series of spiral, and circular petroglyphs (symbols carved into rock) discovered at the Loughcrew Megalithic Monument in County Meath, Ireland. Interestingly, archaeologists found the charred remains of nearly 50 individuals right next to the carvings.

Elsewhere in space

Just weeks before the solar eclipse, a powerful, long-lasting  “gamma-ray burst” swept over the planet. The cosmic blast probably happened due to the birth of a black hole. Read about that and more in our weekly space news recap.
