When will the 2022 solar eclipse occur? This is the Expert’s Explanation

1. Partial Solar Eclipse May 1

A Partial Solar Eclipse has occurred previously, namely on Saturday, May 1, 2022. Marufin explained, the beginning of the Partial Solar Eclipse occurred at 01.45 WIB, then peaked at 03.41 WIB.

Meanwhile, the end of the Partial Solar Eclipse will occur at 05:37 WIB. This eclipse is not visible in the territory of Indonesia, and can only be observed in the southern American continent.

2. Partial Solar Eclipse October 25

The next partial solar eclipse, said Marufin, will occur on Tuesday, October 25, 2022.

The initial stages of a partial solar eclipse on October 25, 2022, will occur at 15:58 WIB, the peak of the eclipse will be at 18:00 WIB. Furthermore, the end of the Partial Solar Eclipse will occur at 20.02 WIB.

Unfortunately, the October 25, 2022 Partial Solar Eclipse could not be observed in Indonesia.

The solar eclipse is predicted to occur again on April 20, 2023.

Quoted from the news Kompas.comThursday (28/4/2022) experts said, this solar eclipse phenomenon will be a hybrid eclipse that shows the characteristics of a total solar eclipse and an annular solar eclipse.

In addition, the next Total Solar Eclipse phenomenon is also predicted to be visible from North America, and will occur on April 8, 2024.

The impact of the solar eclipse

To note, a Partial Solar Eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon when the Earth, Moon and Sun lie in a straight line, the surface of the Sun observed from Earth is only partially covered by the Moon.

This is because the shadow of the Moon that falls on the Earth’s surface is only a penumbral or pseudo shadow. Meanwhile, the core umbra shadow is outside the Earth’s surface.

A solar eclipse occurs during the new moon (conjunction). That is in line with the positions of the Moon and Sun as seen from Earth,” said Marufin.

“In every event of conjunction and opposition of the Moon (i.e. the full moon), it is always accompanied by rising tides of sea water. So there is the potential for coastal flooding (rob) when a solar eclipse occurs,” he continued.

Another impact of a solar eclipse is on the supply of electricity from solar power. Solar eclipses, especially total solar eclipses, can reduce the intensity of sunlight that is not on the Earth’s surface in the eclipse zone.

Thus reducing the electrical power that can be produced from solar power, both from non-thermal principles such as solar panels or photovoltaics, as well as from thermal principles such as solar towers, Stirling generators and so on.
