The instant of greatest eclipse takes place on 2011 Jul 01 at 08:39:30 TD (08:38:24 UT1). This is 6.2 days before the Moon reaches perigee. During the eclipse, the Sun is in the constellation Gemini. The synodic month in which the eclipse takes place has a Brown Lunation Number of 1095.
The eclipse belongs to Saros 156 and is number 1 of 69 eclipses in the series. Thus, the 2011 Jul 01 event is the very first eclipse of the series . All eclipses in this series occur at the Moons descending node. The Moon moves northward with respect to the node with each succeeding eclipse in the series and gamma increases.
The partial solar eclipse of 2011 Jul 01 is preceded two weeks earlier by a total lunar eclipse on 2011 Jun 15.
These eclipses all take place during a single eclipse season.
The eclipse predictions are given in both Terrestrial Dynamical Time (TD) and Universal Time (UT1). The parameter ΔT is used to convert between these two times (i.e., UT1 = TD - ΔT). ΔT has a value of 66.5 seconds for this eclipse.
