70 Adansi South communities to watch eclipse


New Edubiase (Ash), March 25, GNA - More than 70 communities in the Adansi South District will experience the eclipse of the sun on March 29.

Some of the major communities include Adansi-Praso, Afiaso, Akutreso, Apagya, Ataasi-Nkwanta, Atobiase, Atwereboana, New Edubiase, Nkranfo-Nkwanta and Mpirekyire.

Others are Amponyase, Gromesa Number Two and Sikaman. Mr Osei Poku, the Adansi South District Co-ordinating Director who briefed the Ghana news Agency on the eclipse at New Edubiase, said about 53 towns and villages will experience total eclipse for about two minutes 58 seconds while the remaining communities will experience the eclipse for one minute 53 seconds.

He advised people in the district to purchase the special glasses that had been designed for the eclipse and advised those who cannot buy them not to make any attempt to watch the eclipse since it could harm their eyes that could lead to blindness.

Mr Poku appealed to teachers to explain the need for them to protect their eyes before watching the eclipse to their pupils.
