  1. Image above shows, most of the Eclipse passing through India, and that's very good news for Indian Citizens.
    Watching Eclipse with naked eyes, and using unconventional methods like X-Ray Films, Smoked Glass is very dangerous. Safe and Tested Solar filters Eclipse Goggles is supposed to be best as suggested by NASA and many astronomy related websites.
    I found a source - who are the best resource in India. Don't go for cheap alternatives, as it is related to your precious eyes. Happy Viewing.
