How to catch a solar eclipse
The Ministry of Earth Science advised that eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time. There is a reason behind this, as it can cause permanent damage to the eyes leading to blindness even when the Moon covers most portions of the Sun. Hence, a safe technique to catch the solar eclipse is either by using a proper filter like aluminized Mylar, black polymer, welding glass of shade number 14 or by making a projection of the Sun’s image on a white board by telescope.
