It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays -- even if the sun is partly obscured. Please take the necessary precautions to keep from harming your eyesight and share this information with you family and friends.
You should wear special eclipse glasses or welders goggles at all times. They can be purchased online and are pretty inexpensive. Regular sunglasses are useless. You can also use an indirect viewing method such as a pinhole projection box.
