HOW

It is never safe to look at the sun with the naked eye.  Even during a partial eclipse, when only a very small part of the sun is visible, viewing it without eye protection risks permanent eye damage or blindness. Listed below are a few ways of safely watching the eclipse.  No matter which recommended technique you choose, do not stare continuously at the sun. Take breaks and give your eyes a rest.  And, remember, don’t use regular sunglasses — they don’t offer your eyes sufficient protection.

– Projection

– Filters approved for solar viewing

– Telescopes with solar filters
