A total eclipse of the Sun occurs on Thursday 25 June, 2150 UT, with maximum eclipse at 00:11 UT. A dramatic total eclipse will plunge the Sun into darkness for 7 minutes and 14 seconds at maximum, creating an amazing spectacle for observers in a very broad path, 260 km wide at maximum.

The total eclipse lasts for 7 minutes and 14 seconds. Maximum eclipse is at 00:11:56 UT.

During this eclipse the Sun will be 0.525° in apparent diameter, 1.6% smaller than average. The Moon will be at perigee, making it extremely large. At the start and end of the eclipse the Moon will be 0.557°, and at maximum eclipse 0.567°, which is 6.7% larger than average; hence it will cover the Sun, making this a total eclipse. The statistics page has information on the ranges of the sizes of the Sun and Moon.

are in the TDT timescale.

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.
