Only the south and south-western parts of South America, Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, and a majority of the landmass of Antarctica have witnessed the solar eclipse. However, countries like India and the United States weren’t able to see it because the eclipse was supposed to take place during the daytime.

As per IST, the solar eclipse commenced at 12.15 am on 1st May. But it’s just the beginning, the partial eclipse fully had its moment around 2.11 am on 1st May and was supposed to end at 4.07 a.m. Since it was the night hours in countries like India, it was the nighttime.

For the western crowd, the eclipse was first visible at around 2.45 p.m. EST and it lasted for a prolonged period. It finally ended at 6.37 p.m. EST. Countries like the U.K. and the U.S. also missed it, however, several live streaming events were happening and the super interesting sky gazers stayed updated through this.

An Update About The Next Solar Eclipses

 As a matter of fact, partial eclipses are lengthier compared to the total solar eclipses. As recorded, the next partial eclipse is going to happen in April 2023 and that is a yearlong wait. On the other hand, in October, NASA confirmed that in countries such as northeast Africa, Europe, the Middle East as well as Western Asia, a partial solar eclipse is supposedly going to take place. 

Plus, Americans are already planning to see the total solar eclipse that is dated to happen on 8th April 2024. In fact, it’s far away but it is going to be quite a historic incident. Such events happen after the moon’s orbits come close to Earth. Thus, it blocks any possibility of viewing the sun and a shadow will be cast on the Earth’s surface.

According to the American Astronomical Society, they said, “any given spot on the planet only sees temporary darkness from the moon’s shadow once every 400 years.”

Though the solar eclipse can happen around twice every year not everyone gets to watch it.

 If you take the 2024 total solar eclipse event into consideration, this is going to happen in the afternoon and it will be visible in certain parts of the world. The eclipse will be traversing above Mexico and then will cover 14 other states. Finally, it will cast its shadow on Canada and then exit.

So, in spite of moments like these happening for a very specific time frame, not all can enjoy the view.
