Hi All,

Here is a little aid to solar observing and how to do it safely. Not specific to the March 20th solar eclipse in mind, it can serve as a guide to allow beginners see what they can use to observe the Sun safely. Also included in the Articles section on this website.

Download the Adobe PDF file here (5.3MB):

Distribute, copy and print it as you see fit!


Thanks,
