Solar Eclipse Hits Nigeria (Video)

01 Sep

The much awaited partial Solar Eclipse
also known as the annular eclipse finally
occurred on Thursday September 1, 2016
as predicted.
The eclipse was captured in Lagos at
about 8.35am though it was expected to
have been seen in the city as at 7:14 am
with a peak at 8:26 am.
At about the same time, viewers in the
nation’s capital Abuja, gathered at the
National Space Research and
Development Agency to view the sight.
The annular eclipse was obstructed by a
cloudy sky for much of the time, which
made it difficult to clearly see the rare
occurrence by viewers in some parts of
the country.

Other cities in the country where the
eclipse was viewed include Port Harcourt,
the Rivers State capital, Maiduguri, the
Borno State capital, Sokoto, Anyigba in
Kogi State, Kano, Osogbo, Benin City.
