The most important thing to remember at any time is that you should not look directly at the sun without solar filters. Only during the total ocultation phase of a total solar eclipse (not this one) it is safe to do so (and just because the Sun is then totally oculted bu the Moon).
For more detailed instruction on how to observe the Sun, please visit the “Safe Observations” page.
You can use eclipse glasses
… or solar filters with a telescope or binoculars
… or create a pinhole camera
If you have trees nearby, each gap between the leafs works as a natural pinhole camera, so you’ll see something similar to the next image:
…or you can cross your fingers in a grid, producing a similar effect.
