Do you remember the last Eclipse in Ghana? Get ready for the next one

Experts have documented that in 2020, there will be the occurrence of 4 eclipses of the moon and 2 eclipses of the sun around the world.

Eclipse of the sun rarely happens in our world.

Several of us were ignorant about what is called the eclipse of the sun when the media announced its occurrence on 29th March 2006. It happened in some parts of Ghana.

Do you remember very well and did you see it?. It was an amazing experience for many Ghanaians(about 3 million people).

Now, I write to alert you so that you will take note of the next eclipses. The immediate one is going to be the “Total Lunar Eclipse” in Accra.

It is also called the “blood moon.” The shadow would be cast on the moon. Meaning the earth will be in the middle of the sun and the moon.

It is going to start on Mon, May 16, 2022, at 1:32 am and end on Mon, May 16, 2022, at 5:52 am.

It will be visible to people living in Accra. Since the darkness happens on the moon, we do not see its impacts.

But the next eclipse of the sun(partial) will happen on Saturday, 02/06/2027. It will cast darkness on part of Ghana just like what occurred in 2006.

In the eclipse of the sun, the moon comes between the sun and the earth casting a shadow on part of the earth.

We saw how wonderful God is. There was complete silence at the places it occurred. Every activity came to a halt. Birds quickly flew to their nests thinking it was night time.

And then again the next total solar eclipse in Ghana will happen on Friday, 04/30/2060.

Oh yes, 2060. Just add 40 years to your current age and think about it. Hope you will still be alive then.

Most of you guys will be old men and old women with walking sticks. But it would be a good opportunity for you to tell your grandchildren some history about eclipses in Ghana.
