Eclipse Shades
According to NASA. “The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as ‘eclipse glasses’ or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. Eclipse viewers should meet ISO 12312-2 international standard.”

Please read NASA’s safety information for eclipse viewing:
