See STUNNING visuals of the first Solar Eclipse of 2022
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the US shared stunning visuals of the solar eclipse.
"The Solar Ultraviolet Imager (#SUVI) on #GOES16 caught a glimpse of the moon's disk as it passed in front of the Sun during the first #solareclipse of 2022," NOAA tweeted, along with a picture of the GOES-16 footage.
Although it was a partial solar eclipse, it still was a spectacular sight to see from several regions of the world including southern South America, Antarctica,
and the Southern and Pacific Oceans. Unfortunately, India was unable to witness this phenomenon.
According to NASA, a solar eclipse happens when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, fully or partially blocking the Sun’s light in some areas.
A partial solar eclipse takes place when the Moon and Sun are not perfectly aligned, which means the Moon does not completely cover the Sun.
