IT IS NOT SAFE TO STARE DIRECTLY AT THE SUN, EVEN IF YOU ARE WEARING SUNGLASSES. Make sure you read the fine print if you are using glasses designed specifically for solar eclipse. For example, many glasses tell you NOT TO STARE FOR MORE THAN 3 MINUTES, but instead look at the eclipse in short spurts over the course of several hours.
Make sure that:
- Viewing glasses are not scratched
-Viewing lenses are not wrinkled
-Viewing glasses are not more than 3 years old
