NASA tweets ahead of Solar Eclipse and Summer Solstice

Earth and the Moon are in a constant dance as they orbit the sun, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) tweeted ahead of two special celestial events on Sunday, June 21, 2020. These are Summer Solstice and an annular solar eclipse. According to NASA,  there is no part of an annular eclipse during which it is safe to look directly at the Sun. You must use a proper solar filter or an indirect viewing method during all phases of the eclipse — even if only a tiny sliver of the Sun is visible around the Moon’s edge, that’s still enough to cause damage to your eyes.
