Total Solar Eclipse in April 2024: Visible from Pakistan?

The cosmos is all set to unfurl a grand spectacle with the first total solar eclipse of 2024, scheduled for the night of April 8th and 9th. However, skywatchers in Pakistan will miss this astronomical event, as confirmed by the country’s Meteorological Department.

The eclipse is expected to kick off at 8:42 PM (Pakistan Standard Time) on April 8th, reaching its peak at 11:17 PM, and wrapping up at 1:52 AM on April 9th.

While Pakistan will be off the eclipse’s viewing trajectory, stargazers in Western Europe, North America, and South America are in for a visual feast. The eclipse’s path will offer them an exclusive view of this cosmic dance.

The 2024 total solar eclipse will also cast its shadow over the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic Oceans. This event is of particular significance for the United States, marking the first total solar eclipse visible there since August 2017. The next such event for the region isn’t due until August 2044.

The last total solar eclipse, which took place globally in December 2021, was exclusively visible in Uttar Pradesh, India. As the world gears up for the 2024 total solar eclipse, astronomical enthusiasts worldwide are filled with anticipation for this mesmerizing spectacle, even as Pakistan misses out on this celestial display.
