June 5 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse:  A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the Earth's partial shadow. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will darken slightly but not completely. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.

June 20 - June Solstice: The North Pole of the earth will be tilted towards the Sun, which will have reached its northernmost position in the sky and will be directly over the Tropic of Cancer at 23.44 degrees north latitude.

June 21 Annual Solar Eclipse:  An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far away from the Earth to completely cover the Sun. The Sun's corona is not visible during an annular eclipse. A partial eclipse will be visible throughout most of eastern Africa, the Middle East, and southern Asia.
