The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Will Be Historic — Here’s Why

But Don’t Look

But Don’t Look

It’s important to remember that you should never, ever look directly at the sun – especially during a total solar eclipse. Doing so can lead to permanent eye damage or even blindness. The best way to observe a solar eclipse is using a pinhole camera which projects the image of the eclipse without any of the dangerous rays of light hitting the eye. You can also purchase special viewing goggles to protect your eyes.
