How to View the 2017 Solar Eclipse Safely

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 way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” (example shown at left) or hand-held solar viewers.
