This is a photo of Very Reverend S.L. Addo Donkoh, the headmaster of my school, Akuse Methodist Secondary Technical School (AMEST). The photograph was taken on the morning of 29 March 2006, just before a total solar eclipse passed through Ghana that day. Each student and faculty member at the school received a pair of special eclipse glasses that we were to wear to protect our eyes from the sun. The headmaster is testing them prior to the eclipse. The eclipse passed through Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Libya and Egypt.
