Solar eclipse 2022: Vivid photos of the space event

The last solar eclipse of 2022 occurred on Tuesday, October 25. In some parts of Asia, Africa and Europe, a partial eclipse could be observed, manifested as a dark bite of the Sun. Over Ukraine, this spectacle was obscured by thick clouds, so if you missed it, you can still enjoy photos and videos taken by eyewitnesses from around the world.

To a spectacular space event, we thank the Moon, which covers our star and creates a solar eclipse. Our lunar neighbor moves between the Sun and the Earth, casting its shadow on us. For partial eclipse, only a part of the Sun is blocked, so it looks like a dark piece has been removed from the solar circle.

The observation of the eclipse depends on the place, time and weather. Cloudy skies can interfere with the spectacle. Therefore, the Internet comes to the rescue with online broadcasts that help people connect to the incident. Therefore, even if you missed the eclipse or found yourself in the wrong place in the world, look at the photos below to enjoy the spectacle.

The UK Space Agency posted on Twitter about how it happened.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shared a very different view of the eclipse from a satellite observing the shadow of the Moon, rejecting the shadow of the Earth.

The virtual telescope project has generally organized a live broadcast of the eclipse, and now you can view the replay.

Timeanddate also hosted a live broadcast that received its feeds from different telescopes along the eclipse path.

It was the second and last solar eclipse in 2022 after another partial eclipse in April. The next time this event will take place in April 2023.
