A partial solar eclipse will be visible from the city and most of the country during the Diwali festival on October 25, according to astrophysicist Debi Prasad Duari. On the other hand, people in the eastern metropolis would only be able to see the second partial solar eclipse of 2022 for a short time, while people in the northern and western parts of the country would be able to see it better.
According to Duari, the eclipse will not be visible from northeastern India because it will occur after sunset in those areas, according to Duari.
According to Duari, the partial cosmic event on October 25 will be visible from most of Europe, northern Africa, the Middle East, and portions of Asia, according to Duari.

“The partial solar eclipse will begin in Iceland around 2:29 p.m. IST and will be seen from Russia at 4:30 p.m. IST.” “It will terminate about 6:32pm IST over the Arabian Sea,” he told PTI as he shared details about the celestial event.
“The eastern section of the country will only see a partial eclipse, and that too at sunset.” The northern and western parts of the country are better places to see the partial eclipse from a better vantage point and for a longer period of time. During the new moon (Amavasya), the Sun, Moon, and Earth practically form a straight line, allowing us to observe the Moon without any sunlight falling on it. However, at times, such as on October 25, the Sun, Moon, and Earth will virtually be on the same plane, causing the moon to appear to partially cover the sun for a period of time, resulting in a partial solar eclipse, “he explained.

The partial eclipse will begin at about 4:52pm in and around the city, with the maximum occurring at 5:01pm and ending at 5:03pm at sunset, according to Duari.
“Even at full eclipse, the Moon will cover only 4% of the lit disc of the setting Sun,” he stated.
The celestial event will happen between 4:41pm and 4:59pm in the town of Siliguri in north Bengal. According to Duari, 8.91 percent of the Sun will be covered by the Moon’s disc at the peak of the eclipse, which will happen around 4:56pm.
“It will begin at about 4:29pm in New Delhi and end with the sunset at 6:09pm, with the maximum eclipse occurring at 5:42pm when the Sun will be veiled by the Moon by barely 24.5 percent,” Duari said.
The eclipse will be visible from 4:26pm to 6:09pm in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, with the maximum at around 5:30pm, when the disc of the Sun will be eclipsed by 42.5 percent.
“The eclipse will begin at 4:49pm in Mumbai, with the maximum occurring around 5:42pm.” It will conclude at 6:09 p.m., when the sun appears to set over the Arabian Sea. “Around 24.5 percent of the Sun’s disc will be covered here,” he noted.
The eclipse will be visible again in southern and central India soon before sunset, with Nagpur viewing the eclipse from 4:49pm to 5:42pm. The eclipse will begin at 5:12pm in Bengaluru, peaking at 5:49pm and finishing at 5:55pm at the sunset. The eclipse will be visible in Chennai from 5:14 pm to 5:44 pm, according to the astrophysicist.
He says that the next important solar eclipse that can be seen from India will be an annular eclipse on May 21, 2031. This will be visible from a thin piece of land in south India.
India will be able to see the next total solar eclipse on March 20, 2034, from the northernmost region of Kashmir. This will be three years after the last one.
According to Duari, the entire country would see a partial eclipse of varying magnitudes based on its geographical location on both days.
A partial eclipse will be seen on June 1, 2030, from northern India.
Duari told people who wanted to watch an eclipse that they should do so with “great caution” because the Sun’s rays could hurt their eyes.
“Even if the degree of the partial eclipse is not discernible in most of the country, everyone who wishes to witness this cosmic event must exercise the utmost caution.” “The sun’s rays can be extremely hazardous to the eye and can lead to blindness,” he explained.
