New Delhi:

India is only getting a partial Solar Eclipse on Wednesday. People in country’s Northeast and Eastern coastal strip will be able to get a partial view of historic astronomical incident.

But beware! A partial solar eclipse does not mean a lesser risk for those who view it with their naked eyes. So if you really want to see this moment, here are some must follow dos and don’ts:

# Don’t watch with naked eyes: Use protective eye wear, such as welder’s glasses (rating not less than 14) and a solar filter of optical density 5 or more

# Safest way to watch: Homemade pinhole camera

# Avoid clicking, or use a solar filter to protect your DSLR camera sensor

# Eevn if click then use a high ISO setting and high resolution.

# Don’t use ordinary sunglasses, smoked glass, X-ray film, stacks of negative film to view the eclipse
