Solar Eclipse Webcast from Ghana in Africa
29 March 2006


On the 29th of March 2006 a total eclipse of the sun was visible from within a narrow corridor which traversed half the Earth. The path of the moon's umbral shadow began in Brazil and extended across the Atlantic ocean, northern Africa, and central Asia where it ended at sunset in western Mongolia. The partial eclipse was seen within the much broader path of the moon's penumbral shadow, which included the northern two thirds of Africa, Europe, and central Asia.

Scientists from the University of Cape Coast in Ghana, together with the CSIR in South Africa, webcasted live video coverage of this event from Ghana.
