How to View the 2024 Solar Eclipse Safelysunglasses

Looking directly at the sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (totality), when the moon entirely blocks the sun’s bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality.

The only safe ways to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or a view such as a funnel of pinhole viewer.
