5. During a solar eclipse (moon blocking the sun) it is very
tempting to look directly at this event, doing so usually
results in eye damage. Learn about the safety of viewing the
eclipse. 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.
Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones,
are not safe for looking at the Sun.
