A safe solar filter will produce a view of the sun that is about as bright as the full moon surrounded by a dark sky as well as block out more than 99 percent of the sun's light which would be rather harmful, according to the American Astronomical Society (AAS). This simulation can help give you a better idea of what to look for during the solar eclipse and determine if you should make the trek to the path of totality.

Morehead said, "It is possible to look at the sun with the right kind of telescope". A special solar filter (in addition to your protective eyewear) is needed to protect your camera and your eyes.
