Safety Tips

Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of the solar eclipse, when the moon entirely blocks the sun.

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers.
