During a partial solar eclipse, the moon “bites” the sun. In the case of the eclipse on April 30, approximately 64% of the solar disk will be bitten off at most. The amount will vary depending on your viewing location. Credit: Rhys Jones/CC BY 2.0.

Moon, constellation, Saros.

This partial solar eclipse occurs 4.7 days before the moon reaches its apogee, its furthest point from Earth.

During the eclipse, the sun is facing the constellation Aries. ​
The eclipse belongs to Saros 119 in the Saros eclipse catalog which describes its periodicity. It is number 66 of 71 eclipses in the series. All eclipses in this series occur at the ascending node of the moon. The moon moves south of the node with each successive eclipse in the series.

Upcoming eclipses and eclipse seasons.

There will be no total solar eclipses this year. However, another partial solar eclipse, on October 25, will be visible from Europe, northeast Africa, the Middle East and western Asia, according to NASA.

The partial solar eclipse on April 30, 2022 is followed two weeks later by a total lunar eclipse on May 16, 2022. It will be visible almost throughout the Americas (except for Alaska and northwestern Canada) and in western Africa and Europe.

Total lunar eclipse from May 15 to 16. All of these eclipses take place during a single eclipse season. An eclipse season is an approximate 35-day period during which at least 2 (and possibly 3) eclipses are unavoidable. The current eclipse season has two eclipses: April 30 and May 15-16, 2022.
