Pakistan won’t experience the first solar eclipse of 2023 on April 20.
The hybrid solar eclipse, which began as a total solar eclipse as the moon’s shadow fell on Earth, will change to an annular (ring-shaped) eclipse as the shadow of the moon moves towards the planet, providing the entire world with a beautiful sight.
Even now, live broadcasting via the internet allows Pakistanis to witness the magnificent spectacle. The anticipated eclipse sighting has also been verified by the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD).
The eclipse, which won’t be visible anywhere in the country, will begin early on April 20 and terminate just before noon, according to Pakistan Standard Time, according to the PMD.
Below are the times for each of the solar eclipse’s phases:
- At 6:34 AM PST, the eclipse will start.
- Totality will occur at 7:37 A.M. PST.
- Eclipse’s peak will occur at 9:17 AM PST.
- Ends at 11:59 PST
The rare solar eclipse will be seen partially in some locations around the world and entirely in others, according to the PMD. Southern and eastern Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and regions over the Indian and Pacific oceans will all be able to see what’s happening.
