PLEASE BE AWARE!!!

It is extremely dangerous to look at the Sun at any time.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TAKE ANY PHOTOS OF THE ECLIPSE
WITHOUT SPECIALIST EQUIPMENT!!!

 Even the small amount of Sun peeking out from behind the Moon during an eclipse is enough to make you blind if you are not careful.

Never look at the Sun through binoculars or a telescope,
or through sunglasses, a camera or through a mobile.
They will not protect your eyes!
