The timings of the phases of the overall eclipse worldwide are as follows. In any particular place it would have been seen for a significantly shorter duration as the shadow moved across the Earth:
|Partial eclipse began:||07:53:47 UT|
|Maximum eclipse:||08:38:24 UT|
|Partial eclipse ended:||09:22:45 UT|
During this eclipse the Sun was 0.524° in apparent diameter, 1.6% smaller than average. The Moon was 7 days after apogee and 6 days before perigee. At maximum eclipse it was 0.521° in apparent diameter, which is 1.8% smaller than average. This has no real effect on this eclipse, since the Moon's central shadow misses the Earth, making this a partial eclipse. The statistics page has information on the ranges of the sizes of the Sun and Moon.
This tiny partial eclipse must surely set a record for the most insignificant solar eclipse.

The Sun and Moon distances are shown in km, and as a percentage of their minimum - maximum distances; hence 0% is the closest possible (Earth's perihelion, or the Moon's closest possible perigee) and 100% is the farthest (aphelion, the farthest apogee). The statistics page has information on the ranges of sizes of the Sun and Moon.
