The excitement was obvious.
At exactly 1.22 p.m. Sunday, November 3,2013, Ghana and other countries in West Africa experienced a partial solar eclipse.
There was a last minute rush for the protective eye shield as people began cashing in and selling their shades to others after observing the eclipse.
With the help of the shades, you could see the moon slowly eat away the shine of the sun. The darkness that could be seen was what the shades produced as it captured the partial eclipse.
After a while, people Joy News spoke to said they thought there should have been some kind of darkness because it was predicted the moon would cover 80% of the sun.
People were expecting the darkness experienced in 2006 when Ghana had a total eclipse.
