A partial eclipse of the Sun occurs on Wednesday 6 April, 2991 UT, with maximum eclipse at 03:30 UT. With only 13% of the Sun covered at maximum eclipse, this will be a very marginal eclipse at best, and rather uninteresting.

Maximum eclipse is at 03:30:27 UT.

During this eclipse the Sun will be 0.535° in apparent diameter, 0.4% larger than average. The Moon will be just 4 days before perigee, making it relatively large. At maximum eclipse it will be 0.528° in apparent diameter, which is around 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.

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.
