eclipse It is one of the most fascinating astronomical phenomena, and it is not only watched by enthusiasts. It occurs when the moon is between the earth and the sun and completely or partially obscures the sun’s disk. There are several types of solar eclipses in astronomy:
- total solar eclipse,
- partial solar eclipse
- annular solar eclipse,
- Hybrid solar eclipse.
On Tuesday, October 25, the moon will cover part of the solar disk so we can observe a partial solar eclipse.. This phenomenon will be visible from all over Poland, and the most beautiful views can be admired by residents of the northeastern part of the country, where the maximum sun coverage reaches 45%. In contrast, in Krakow, the magnitude of the maximum phase of the eclipse is only 37 percent.
A partial solar eclipse will be visible from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Poland time. It will reach its maximum point at 12:23 p.m., when the sun is at its highest level above the horizon. In different regions of Poland, the exact moments of each phase of the eclipse may vary up to several minutes.
The hours of partial solar eclipse in the extreme phase for individual cities in Poland are as follows:
- Bialystok – 12:25,
- Bydgoszcz – 12:15,
- Gdansk – 12:18,

The next visible partial solar eclipse will occur in Poland on August 12, 2026. The next total eclipse, which can be seen in our country, will not occur until October 7, 2135..
When observing a solar eclipse, never look directly at the disk of the sun, even if a small part of it is visible. Sudden changes in light intensity during an eclipse can damage the retina before we can look away or our eyes adjust to the change in light intensity.
In addition, you should also never look at a solar eclipse through binoculars or a telescopeWhile using special glasses, the concentrated sunlight passing through the device can burn through the filters and damage your eyesight.
The best solution in this case is to purchase special glasses or sunscreens for optical devices And follow the recommendations of specialists.
