Solar eclipse - taking care of your eyes
Public Health England (PHE) is reminding people planning to
watch the partial eclipse of the sun on Friday 20 March 2015 to
take precautions to reduce potential damage to their eyes.
The Royal Astronomical Society (RAS)
has published detailed advice
and useful information on how to safely view the eclipse.
They advise that viewing a solar eclipse is potentially hazardous
and should only be attempted with caution. You should never, ever -
under any circumstances - look directly at the Sun. In their
leaflet they list there are things we can get hold of easily - or
even make - that are safe to use.
