General News of Sunday, 3 November 2013
Ghana and some parts of the world experienced a partial eclipse of the Sun on Sunday, the third Day of November.
It was first visible in the Southern United States, before sweeping east across the Atlantic Ocean and the African continent.
The moon started covering the sun at about 12:30 pm and those who had the opportunity of watching through the eclipse shades, it was a ‘beauty to behold’.
About 80 to 85 percent of the sun’s face was covered by the Moon.
A member of the African Astronomical Society, Prof Emmanuel Amamoo-Otchere has indicated in an interview on Peace FM that the next partial eclipse will occur in 2027 and then in 2034, there will be a total eclipse just like what occurred in 2006.
