NASA provides explicit instructions on how to view an eclipse of any kind.
When watching a partial solar eclipse, you must wear solar viewing or eclipse glasses throughout the entire eclipse if you want to face the Sun. , NASA Statement, via NASA.gov.
Solar viewing or eclipses glasses are NOT regular sunglasses; regular sunglasses are not safe for viewing the Sun, NASA Statement, via NASA.gov.
If you don’t have solar viewing or eclipse glasses, you can use an alternate indirect method, such as a pinhole projector. , NASA Statement, via NASA.gov.
Pinhole projectors shouldn’t be used to look directly at the Sun, but instead to project sunlight onto a surface, NASA Statement, via NASA.gov.
