A solar eclipse is a phenomenon that covers the sun Through the face of the moon in the sky. For this to happen, several circumstances must coincide. First of all, the moon should be in the new moon phase and its disk should be near the sun.
A partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon covers part of the face of our star today.
On October 25, 2022, this phenomenon can also be observed from the territory of Poland. However, observing a partial eclipse should be approached with caution. The sun is the only thing in the sky that can harm it if it approaches it unprepared.
Closest partial solar eclipse in Poland It will start on Tuesday (October 25th) at 11:12 AM. The lunar disk on the right will overlap the Sun. The show will run until 12:23 PM after which it will gradually fade away. After 13:34 the partial solar eclipse will end in our country.
The best conditions for observing a partial eclipse will be in northeastern Poland, where up to 46.37% of the sun’s disk will be in the peak phase of this phenomenon.
Residents of southwestern Poland will enjoy the worst observing conditions, as only 32% of the sun’s disk disappears under the moon’s disk.
We will have to wait until March 29, 2025 for the next solar eclipse in Poland. In three years, we will be able to observe a partial eclipse again.
However, it will definitely be less in depth than the upcoming October show.
on the other side The next total solar eclipse in Poland will not occur until October 7, 2135. It will be the best you can see in Sudetes.
There are many ways to observe a solar eclipse. The easiest way is to equip yourself with eclipse glasses, which have special filters that block the harmful radiation from our star today.
It’s not like sunglasses that won’t do the job.
It may also be a good idea to look through a solder mask or through shiny CDs. However, it is also worth being careful in this case. Staring at the sun for a long time causes a high temperature inside the eye, which damages eyesight. So let’s observe the eclipse for a while.
Impressions of interesting observation can also be provided by observations with a telescope or binoculars. It is worth using the knowledge of an experienced person on this occasion.
Observing a partial solar eclipse through a telescope or binoculars without proper filters can damage your eyesight. These devices act like a magnifying glass with increased power, focusing the light into the lens with tremendous power.
Among the many examples of solar filters are ND5 film. You can buy it online or in stationary astrological stores. The filter sticks to the place through which sunlight enters the telescope. It is important that the foil tightly covers all the gaps through which light can enter. In the case of binoculars, it should cover the two front lenses, and in the case of a telescope – the aperture or eyepiece in front. When in doubt, it is best not to put your eyes to the telescope.
This eclipse will almost certainly be reported online. In the absence of weather or other factors inhibiting your feedback, finding a live stream online is a good way to go. Many astronomy buffs will surely do so.
