Partial solar eclipse on January 6: Is it safe to watch?

Observing the Sun can be harmful for the eyes if not done with the right safety equipment. NASA reports looking directly at the Sun during a solar eclipse can burn the cornea's transparent outer layer and damage the light-sensitive cells in the retina. It is also suggested that solar eclipse should be witnessed through binoculars, telescope or optical camera viewfinder.

A blood moon is simply the name given for the color that the moon turns during a total lunar eclipse, when the sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere bends around the planet and scatters the shorter wavelength light (blues and greens) and leaves the redder end of the spectrum to fall onto the moon's surface. Scientists also suggest that the safe way to witness the partial solar eclipse is to watch it through special objective solar filters or hand-held solar viewers.

A partial solar eclipse is when the Moon covers only a certain portion of the Sun.
