An annular eclipse of the Sun occurs on Wednesday 7 July, 2252 UT, with maximum eclipse at 16:24 UT. The Sun will be 95% covered in a moderate annular eclipse, lasting 7 minutes and 10 seconds and covering a broad path up to 218 km wide.

The annular eclipse lasts for 7 minutes and 10 seconds. Maximum eclipse is at 16:24:35 UT.

During this eclipse the Sun will be 0.524° in apparent diameter, 1.6% smaller than average. The Moon will be just a day past apogee, making it very small. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.497° in apparent diameter, which is 6.4% smaller than average; this is not large enough to cover the Sun, which is why this is an annular eclipse. The statistics page has information on the ranges of the sizes of the Sun and Moon, and the Moon data page displays detailed information on the Moon's key dates.

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, and the Moon data page displays detailed information on the Moon's key dates.
