He said that the sun will rise “effectively in obscure at about 6:06 a.m., with not exactly half covered by the moon.”

As the sun ascends on June 11, the sun will be less and less covered by the moon, with the shroud finishing at about 6:33 a.m. This view will require an unmistakable perspective on the northeastern skyline, and as consistently uncommon obscuration glasses for review that fulfill the imperative security guidelines.
