The solar eclipse of October 25, 2022, is a partial solar eclipse that will be visible from Europe, the Middle East, and Western Asia. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A partial solar eclipse occurs in the polar regions of the Earth when the center of the Moon's shadow misses the Earth.
