Solar Eclipse To Occur On Sunday – NASRDA by Horlufemi(m): 9:26pm On Feb 23, 2017
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.

Leicester just sacked Claudio Ranieri. Second year in a row the winning manager of the previous Premier League has been sacked...

When you realise Louis van Gaal lasted longer at Man Utd than Ranieri did at Leicester... cheesy cheesy cheesy

2013 Ferguson retires
2014 Pellegrini sacked
2015 Mourinho sacked
