Solar Eclipse To Occur In Nigeria On Sunday, 26th Of February

The National Space Research and
Development Agency has said that
there would be a partial Solar eclipse
across the country on Feb. 26.
The Head of Media and Corporate
Communications, Dr Felix Ale, in a
statement on Thursday said, "A partial
solar eclipse will be visible all over the
country with different degree of totality
to occur on Sunday, February 26."

According to Ale, the highest degree of
obscurity of 33 percent will be
observed in the country during the
natural occurrence in the southern part
of Nigeria, particularly Port Harcourt,
Uyo and Calabar.

He said that the lowest degree of
obscurity would be about nine percent
in the northern part of Nigeria,
particularly in Kebbi.

Ale noted that in the South-West, the
level of obscurity would be 23 per cent
at about 5.42 p.m. and 6.30 p.m.
He, however, said it would be recording
28 to 30 per cent between 4.45 p.m.

and 6.33 p.m. in the South-East.
"Meanwhile, the level of obscurity in
Abuja, the Federal Capital City (FCT)
will be 20 per cent between 4.54 p.m.
and 6.30 p.m.," he said.
He stressed that the solar eclipse
would be observed across the nation,
thereby making each part of the
country a great site for viewing the
eclipse at different degree of obscurity.
According to him, the solar disc will be
covered by the moon as seen from the
earth and the eclipse will be visible as
much as there is clear sky without rain
or cloud.

He, however, said there was no cause
for alarm or reason to panic as the
solar eclipse was a natural occurrence
and should be seen as part of the
beauties of nature.
