Also.... Experts: Maybe Don't Watch Today's Solar Eclipse

Experts really can't stress enough how much you absolutely shouldn't look at this today's eclipse without proper eye protection—and maybe not even then.

According to Ohio optometrist Michael Schecter: "There are serious risks associated with viewing a solar eclipse directly, even when using solar filter glasses."

He says one of the problems is that during an eclipse, the moon covers enough of the sun to allow it to be viewed without pain, tricking people into thinking it isn't doing harm. And NASA warns that eclipse glasses that filter out 100% of harmful rays still need to be used perfectly—for example, by not peeking over the top of them. Just a few seconds of looking at a solar eclipse can do lasting damage.

In addition, researchers find young males are the most likely to damage their eyes while looking at an eclipse.
