Pakistan to witness partial solar eclipse on Oct 25

Pakistan will witness a partial solar eclipse on Tuesday, October 25.

It will be the 16th partial solar eclipse of the century, and the second of this year that will be visible across a swathe of the Northern Hemisphere.

According to the IMCCE institute of France’s Paris Observatory, the eclipse will start at 08:58 GMT (1:58 pm) in Iceland and end off the coast of India at 13:02 GMT (6:02 pm), crossing Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East on its way.

“Tuesday’s eclipse is only partial, as Moon’s shadow will not touch the surface of the Earth at any point,” the Paris Observatory said in a statement.

“The Moon will cover a maximum of 82 percent of the Sun over Kazakhstan, but it will not be enough to darken the daylight,” Paris Observatory astronomer Florent Deleflie said.

“To start getting the sense of darkness in the sky, to perceive a kind of cold light, the Sun needs to be at least 95 percent obscured,” AFP quoted Deleflie.

“We will see that a small piece of the Sun is missing. It won’t be spectacular, but it’s always an event for amateur astronomers – and it can make for beautiful photos,” Deleflie added.

 The next total solar eclipse will be observed in North America on April 8, 2024, according to NASA.
