Partial Solar Eclipse 2022

Date: 25 Oct 2022 (Tuesday)


Time: 02:00 - 05:00 PM

Location: Al Thuraya Astronomy Center, Mushrif Park

Fee: AED 30 - AED 500

A partial solar eclipse is a rare event that occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun’s disk.

During a partial solar eclipse, the Moon, the Sun, and Earth don’t align in a perfectly straight line, and the Moon casts only the outer part of its shadow, the penumbra, on Earth. From our perspective, this looks like the Moon has taken a bite out of the Sun.
