During a total solar eclipse, most of the visible light coming from the sun is blocked (from the point of view of those who can actually witness the eclipse). As a result, it is physically possible to look at the moon as it is blocking the sun. The problem is that your pupils will be relatively wide open, and non-visible radiation that is extremely harmful to the eyes will be able to pour into your eyes, and you will not feel it or sense it initially. The extreme pain/discomfort that you feel when your line of sight nears the visible sun is a very important reaction meant to keep you from being so foolish as to force yourself to look.
Don't look directly at the sun, and don't look directly at a solar eclipse. You could cause blindness or serious loss of vision by doing such things. There are materials that can be safely used, with supervision, to make these observations, and be sure that materials are safe before you use them.
If you look directly at the solar eclipse your eyes will not hurt but it dameges a part of your eyes and you will get blind.
Yes. Looking directly at a solar eclipse, except during totality, can damage your eyes
Looking directly at a solar eclipse without adequate eye protection can harm your eyes. There is no harm in looking at a lunar eclipse.
I'm sure someone did. And they probably hurt their eyes.
a total solar eclipse happens when the moon passes directly in front of the sun...be careful though.people can hurt their eyes by looking right at one of these.
It is dangerous to look directly at a solar eclipse with the naked eyes. Solar eclipse goggles are designed to avoid damaging your eyes while you watch the eclipse taking place.
because we use solar glasses because looking at a solar eclipse for just a second could hurt someone`s eyes. Similar to bird history.
Sometimes, during a total solar eclipse, the corona of sun is visible to our eyes.
No, your eyes can be permanently damaged if you look at the solar eclipse for too long.
No it can damage your eyes
Because the solar eclipse is so bright that it can damage or even burn your eyes
No. There is nothing special about the eclipse that will hurt you eyes. Looking directly at the sun without is harmful to your eyes with or without an eclipse. The only reason such warnings come out before an eclipse is because that is the one time when people will be tempted to look at the sun.
There is no danger in looking at a lunar eclipse. Looking at a solar eclipse without protection can damage your eyes.
No. There is no risk of damage your eyes from watching a lunar eclipse. It is during a solar eclipse that you require eye protection.
No. Looking at a picture of an eclipse will not hurt your eyes. Since it is only a pictures and doesn't produce any blinding light, it will not cause any damage.
Looking directly at a solar eclipse would entail looking directly at the sun. The ultraviolet rays and the sheer intensity of the light can damage your eyes.
Yes. You need eye protection for a solar eclipse but not a lunar eclipse.
A solar eclipse still has enough sunlight and radiation to damage your eyes, and sunglasses block most of the sunlight.
Because the UV rays from the eclipse are too strong for the eyes to withstand, in which case it will burn the retinas in your eyes causing permanent blindness!
No. The only possible danger would come from looking directly at a solar eclipse, which can damage your eyes.
Yes. But don't look at the Sun directly (assuming you are talking about a solar eclipse). Even during a solar eclipse, the Sun is still bright enough to damage your eyes.
On a solar eclipse is like a person in front of the t.v you can't see anything. That's the same with the moon and sun. WARNING: never look at the sun during a solar eclipse. You are going to damage your eyes.
An eclipse in and of itself is not dangerous, but there is an indirect danger. Looking directly at the sun, which you may be tempted to do during a solar eclipse, can harm your eyes.
Yes it is........................... >.>
We averted our eyes from the solar eclipse
