Watching the Eclipse Safely

Eclipse has cast many a shadow over healthy individuals before. The primary concern is of course eye-damage.

Looking directly at the sun for more than a second at any time of the year is potentially courting disaster. Portions of retina may be cooked and one may have eye-trouble for the rest of one's life. Therefore, watching the eclipse with unprotected eyes is a strict no-no.

Remember, there are three and only three safe viewing methods.
  • Watching through a special aluminized mylar film designed specifically for eclipse viewing
  • Watching through very dark, no14 welder's glass
  • Watching through projection, the pinhole camera of childhood would do

Turkey wishes you all the best for a safe and happy sighting!
