How to Safely Watch the Total Solar Eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the Earth and the sun, blocking out the light from the sun.

It can be a partial eclipse or a total eclipse. Total solar eclipses happen more frequently than once every 350 years, but they don’t occur in the exact same place every time.

Looking directly at an eclipse is dangerous because the light from the sun is being dimmed, reducing the aversion reflex.

It is important to use ISO-certified glasses to safely view the eclipse. Eclipses provide an opportunity to study the sun and demonstrate the workings of the solar system.

Technological advancements have allowed for unique ways to experience the eclipse, such as using light sound boxes for the blind and partially sighted, tablets with tactile dots, and audio descriptions. The eclipse also offers insights into human behavior and how animals react.
