The Solar Eclipse will see the Sun eclipsed by our Moon – but can you see when, where, and how?
We’ve put together a simple guide on how to watch a solar eclipse online, if you can’t get to where it can be seen with your own eyes.
When is the next solar eclipse?
The next eclipse will be visible on October 25, 2022 – but not for everyone.
It would be a total solar eclipse – meaning the entire Sun would not be visible when the Moon passed in front of it.
The Moon will obscure the Sun’s image to viewers on Earth, creating a spectacular effect on the sky.
Sadly, it is best viewed from Antarctica and its surrounding waters.
However, you should be able to see a partial eclipse if you live in the southernmost part of the world.
Some areas of Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Chile will catch.
“In many of these locations, lunar eclipses will occur before, during, and after sunrise or sunset,” explains Nasa.
“This means that viewers will need to clearly see the horizon as the sun rises or sets to see the eclipse.”
Sadly, the next total solar eclipse in the United States is not expected until April 8, 2024 – with no next total eclipse occurring over much of Europe.
The June 10 event was preceded by a “ring of fire” lunar eclipse, named for the red halo that appears around the Sun during alignment.
How to watch the eclipse online
Thankfully, even if you can’t make it to Antarctica, you can still watch the eclipse online.
Nasa has confirmed that it plans to live-stream the spectacle.
Sadly, the live stream is weather dependent, according to Nasa.
The stream will be available on Nasa’s YouTube channel, as well as on the official page website.
Footage will be streamed from Union Glacier, Antarctica, with support from the JM Pasachoff Antarctic Expedition.
The stream will start at 1:30am EST on December 4th – that’s 6:30am UK time or 10:30pm the night before in California.
The total starts at 2.44 a.m. EST and the stream will end at 3.37 a.m. EST.
How to watch eclipse safely
Watching the eclipse online means no need to be safe – just enjoy the magic through your screen.
If you’re lucky enough to see the eclipse with your own eyes, you should follow Nasa’s advice.
“When viewing a partial eclipse, you must wear eclipse glasses or eclipse glasses during the entire eclipse if you want to face the Sun,” Nasa said.
“Sun or lunar eclipse glasses are NOT regular sunglasses; regular sunglasses are not safe for viewing the Sun.
“If you’re in the path of a total eclipse, you can only remove your eclipse glasses or lunar eclipse glasses when the Moon completely blocks the Sun.
“To see when you can safely remove your glasses, see this page. “
