MIAMI: Everyone who plans to look skyward when the Solar Eclipse sweeps across the United States on Monday should have the proper protective eyewear, or risk lasting blind spots, experts warn.
Other options are number 14 welder´s glass, or making a pinhole projector that allows a user to project the image of the Sun on paper or cardboard.
But with the Great American Eclipse´s shadow set to envelop the entire nation, educating more than 300 million people in its path is a tall order.
"The dangers of looking at the Sun are real and serious," said Vincent Jerome Giovinazzo, director of ophthalmology at Staten Island University Hospital, Northwell Health.
Many may recall a childhood experiment of using a magnifying glass to focus sunlight on a leaf or a sheet of paper and set it on fire.
