The LightSound device never been used for Annular Solar Eclipse phenomenon. Therefore, Apadilangit; Universe Awareness Malaysia, took the initiatives to construct 5 of them to be used for Annular Solar Eclipse in Malaysia.
This device is very useful not only to the visual impaired people but also normal people to hear and feel the celestial phenomenon.
