I saw this recently on Space – Partial solar eclipse of April 2022: When and where it is and how to watch it online: https://www.space.com/partial-solar-eclipse-april-2022-guide/. Slightly longer article, but here’s what I considered the first portion of the article. I thought it was a good Space Saturday post.

The first solar eclipse of 2022 is coming on April 30. There will be a narrow band of visibility across parts of Antarctica, the southern tip of South America, and the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Or, you can watch it online.
Solar eclipses happen when the new moon passes in front of the face of the sun from Earth’s perspective. (Never look at the sun directly with your eyes; instead, follow the safety guide later in this article to help you.)
Partial solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks only a portion of the solar disk. In this case, roughly 64% of the sun’s disk will be blotted out at most, according to NASA. The amount will vary depending on your viewing location.
