A partial eclipse of the Sun occurs on Tuesday 24 June, 2188 UT, with maximum eclipse at 20:07 UT. A small partial eclipse will barely darken the Sun. With just 40% of the Sun covered for viewers closest to the center, this will be of limited interest.

Maximum eclipse is at 20:07:45 UT.

During this eclipse the Sun will be 0.525° in apparent diameter, 1.6% smaller than average. The Moon will be 6 days after apogee and 7 days before perigee. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.517° in apparent diameter, which is 2.6% 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.

Note that while all dates and times on this site (except where noted) are in UT, which is within a second of civil time, the dates and times shown in NASA's eclipse listingsGSFC Eclipse Web Site

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.
