Solar-Eclipse

As we all know, it can be hazardous to stare directly at the sun, and a total solar eclipse is no different. Even though it will be completely dark at some periods during this event, it is crucial to consider that severe eye damage is still a possibility if the necessary precautions aren’t taken. At Clay Eye, we want you to be fully prepared for safe and enjoyable viewing of this phenomenon!
