While we are waiting for the coming great total solar eclipse in the United States in little under two years on April 8, 2024–this first eclipse in 2022 was extra special precursor–a partial solar eclipse, which happened Saturday in the southern hemisphere. The path of this partial solar eclipse was not visible at all from anywhere near the United States. The countries where this eclipse included Antarctica, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, the Falkland Islands, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

First the videos–both zoomed and full disk. Then an interactive map of the areas involved, a YouTube video courtesy of @timeanddate on YouTube, the table of statistics, information on future solar eclipses, and resources. Happy videos!

An Eclipse Never Comes Alone!
A solar eclipse always occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse.
See you in less than two weeks: Lunar Eclipse – May 15th into 16th, 2022

In any solar eclipse, using sunglasses, welding glasses are not rated for viewing. Care for your eyes. Resist the temptation for direct viewing of any annular, partial or total eclipse while not completely blocked by the shadow of the Sun!
