NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has issued guidelines for eye safety while viewing the eclipse on August 21.
According to Fox News:
NASA has issued guidelines on how to watch next month's Great American Total Solar Eclipse.
The government agency noted the only safe way to look directly at partially eclipsed or uneclipsed Sun are via special-purpose solar filters, including "eclipse glasses" or hand-held solar viewers.
"Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun," NASA wrote in its guidelines.
I bought a Celestron Solar Shades kit a few months ago. Celestron is a trusted name in astronomy products.
