How to Watch the Solar Eclipse 2022?

According to health professionals, we should not watch the solar eclipse with the naked eye since it can be harmful. If you really want to watch the eclipse, use special eye protection or indirect methods (never watch the solar eclipse directly).

You can use a telescope, pinhole camera, or camera display to watch the eclipse. If you view the solar eclipse directly, it may cause permanent damage to your eyes due to the high-density radiation from the sun's photosphere.
