On Tuesday, October 25th, 2022, there will be a partial solar eclipse visible from northeastern Spain. In addition, the eclipse will be visible from most of Europe, northeast Africa and western Asia. The maximum magnitude of the eclipse in Catalonia is 0.10, which means that 10% of the sun's diameter will be covered by the moon.
This eclipse will be one of the most modest in recent years, similar to the one we had on June 10, 2021, but if you have access to a telescope with the proper solar filters, we recommend you follow it closely. We are currently in a growth cycle in Solar activity (which will reach its peak in 2025), and we will have the opportunity to observe solar spots, flares and other surprises that our star has in store for us.
The table below specifies the start time of the eclipse, the time and magnitude of its maximum, along with the height of the Sun at that instant, and the end time and height of the Sun then.
In Catalonia, the start time of the eclipse will happen around 11:30AM, therefore, the Sun will be quite high in the sky and we will have no problem observing the eclipse.
Remember that you must observe the Sun with the correct protection. To watch the sun without it may cause severe eye damage that can even lead to permanent vision loss.
NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN WITHOUT PROPER PROTECTION.
The following table shows the eclipse data in each province capital:
Magnitude at maximum
Sun height at màximum (degrees)
Sun height at eclipse end (degrees)
We remind you that you have at your disposal the App Eclipsi 2.0 (for Android) to accompany you on your observations. This application calculates and simulates astronomical events and is an ideal tool for astronomy lovers to know the general and local circumstances of solar and lunar eclipses and planetary transits.
