Safety First-Protect your eyes

From NASA-You should never look at the sun directly without equipment that's specifically designed for looking at the sun. Even using binoculars or a telescope, you could severely damage your eyes or even go blind! Solar eclipses themselves are safe. But looking at anything as bright as the sun is NOT safe without proper protection. And no, sunglasses do NOT count. 
Remember, during the eclipse, you'll be staring at the sun. NASA recommends wearing glasses with a special filter, you can use number 14 welders glass or buy a pair of special-made solar viewing shades, or using a DIY pinhole projector.
