Solar Eclipse in Berlin

Partielle Sonnenfinsternis 2015

In the fall of 2022, Berliners will once again be able to observe a partial solar eclipse, weather permitting.

As with last year's partial solar eclipse, solar coverage will remain below 50 percent. With suitable glasses and protected telescopes, the shadow of the moon in front of the solar disk can still be observed in good weather.

Peak of the Eclipse at 12:13 PM

The partial solar eclipse in Berlin in 2022 will last 2 hours and 9 minutes. A good 32 percent of the sun will be covered at the peak of the eclipse at 12:13 pm. A slight general decrease in brightness can be expected at this level of occultation. The moon slowly moves in front of the sun starting at 11:09 am. This will shine again without occultation starting at 1:19 pm.

Next Visible Partial Eclipse in 2025

The next visible solar eclipse in Berlin will take place on March 29, 2025. Only about 15 percent of the star will be covered. Large-scale coverage of the sun in the capital will occur on August 12, 2026, when nearly 85% of the celestial body will be obscured. There will not be a solar eclipse with total coverage in Berlin in the next 100 years.
