On Thursday 01 September 2016 within the hours of 07:14:27AM – 9:52:59AM, There will be Annular Solar Eclipse of Nigeria.
Annular solar Eclipse happens when the moon is farthest from Earth. Because the moon is farther away from Earth, it seems smaller. It does not block the entire view of the sun. The moon in front of the sun looks like a dark disk on top of a larger sun-colored disk. This creates what looks like a ring around the moon.
The effects of looking at the Eclipse is medically irreversible. So it is strongly discouraged.
But you can enjoy the view by using the Eclipse glasses which is a scientifically research gadget produced to protect your eyes from the adverse effects of the Eclipse.
The glasses are available for sale all across the nation and also in Unilag Pharmacy in akoka.
