Several events can be noticed in the sky in the month of April. The pink moon on the weekends of April 16 and 17, and a partial solar eclipse at the end of the month, which is unfortunately not seen around the world.

An eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the sun and the earth. According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) it is a complete eclipse if it blocks all light, but it is a partial eclipse if it covers only a part of it.

The best way to observe this phenomenon is with special glasses with solar filters designed to enjoy the eclipse.

The next solar eclipse will occur on October 25 and will be partial. NASA estimates that the next total solar eclipse will be recorded by April 8, 2024 and will be visible in Mexico.

The eclipse will be visible in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, parts of Antarctica and Bolivia, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Argentina in South America.
