By Apr. 30, the first solar eclipse of the year will occur. There will be a narrow band of visibility over Antarctica, the southern tip of South America, and also the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

The only total solar eclipse of 2022 will cast shadows on parts of the southern part of the continent today. Observers in Chile and Argentina will be able to see the momentous event in the skies above them, while the rest of us will be able to watch it online.

During the total eclipse, a small segment of the southern hemisphere from Chile to Argentina, as well as parts of the South Pacific, southern Atlantic Ocean, and Antarctica, will experience total darkness as the moon completely covers the disk of the sun.

At 8:33 a.m. EST, the partial phase eclipse will begin in the Pacific Ocean, before the eclipse's total phase, which is visible at 9.32 am EST. Maximum eclipse (when the sun is completely obscured by the moon) will occur at 11:13 a.m. EST.

According to the NASA website, there is a slew of additional future events listed as well.

Starting at 9.40 a.m. EST, NASA will broadcast live coverage of the complete solar eclipse over Chile on its own media channel. At 10 o'clock in the morning EST, Space agency Broadcast tv and the broadcast network on the agency's website will broadcast an hour-long Spanish-language show with live commentary from two NASA scientists, Was about Collado-Vega and Beatrice García.

The best place to watch solar live streaming is on NASA's website, which has a variety of options for viewing the event. The NASA eclipse or before will begin around 12 noon near Charles, Virginia. They should broadcast the live stream called "Solar Eclipse: Through to the Eyes of NASA."

This broadcast will showcase images from NASA research airplanes, high-altitude balloons, satellites, and specially modified telescopes as the eclipse passes through the United States. Video updates will be available from Charleston, Oregon, Idaho Falls, Idaho, Beatrice, Nebraska, Jefferson City, Missouri, Carbondale, Illinois, Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and Clarksville, Tennessee.

You can also see the eclipse live online at Slooh, a space broadcaster hosting a three-day eclipse festival. Slooh will stream pictures of an eclipse from Idaho even though it goes across the continent to continent

The safest way to observe an eclipse is through indirect methods, such as making a pinhole camera at home. You should also read our guide on how to photograph a solar eclipse.
