Two members of the Ghana Planetarium team shared the Transit of Mercury with close to 400 students and staff of Osu Presby Girls School in Accra! After a short talk on the Solar System, students were very excited to actually see planet Mercury using a Solarscope and also view the sun safely using eclipse glasses. (An astronomy club was recently set up at the school thanks to funding from the IAU 100 Special Projects)

    About Me

    I am the weekend events coordinator (voluntary position) at the Planetarium Science Centre, Accra, Ghana. We have 2 types of weekend events - meetings of the Astronomical Society of Ghana, and public events, which may include hands-on activities for children, planetarium show or telescope viewing. I am currently studying astronomy online, and also go into schools presenting science and astronomy sessions.
