Ghana to experience partial solar eclipse today

Ghanaians are expected to experience a partial solar eclipse today Thursday September 1.

According to experts, the moon will come between the sun and the earth between 6:13am and 9am.

People who want to witness the partial eclipse will have to wear protective glasses as the sun’s radiation can burn the retinas of the eyes and cause blindness.

Motorists have also been advised to switch on their hazard lights or park their vehicles during the course of the eclipse.

The last time the country experienced a partial eclipse of the sun was on November 3, 2013. A total eclipse of the sun, however, occurred from 8.30am to 9.30am in some parts of the country on Wednesday, March 29, 2006.
