What occurs during a total solar eclipse?

During a Total Solar Eclipse, the sky darkens to resemble dawn or dusk. Meanwhile, people in the path of Totality get to see the Sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is normally veiled by the dazzling face of the sun.

How do I Watch a total solar eclipse?

Looking directly at the Sun is dangerous unless you have specialist solar viewing eye protection. Direct radiation from the Sun can harm the retina. To observe the eclipse, avoid using a camera lens, binoculars, or telescope that does not have a special-purpose solar filter. Only a pair of Eclipse glasses or spectacles with solar filters are suitable for watching an eclipse safely. Additionally, the glasses shall bear the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 12312-2 code on the inside.

Except during the brief period of totality during a total Solar Eclipse, spectators should always utilize eclipse glasses or another safe solar viewing device to view the Sun.
