i have a feeling not but no where can i find the eclipse goggles anymore

i have also read you can use your iphone as a barrier between you and the light using the camera. will this work fine without damage?

i assumed not- - if only i had a welders mask-

i assume using a phone should work instead of looking directly at it

As has already been stated many time already.....
NO !!!!

THEY WILL NOT PROTECT YOUR EYES!!!


You could borrow a welding helmet but it needs
to have at least a #13 or #14 filter... There are
also other simple solutions to view the Eclipse...
Just do a Google search for Safe DIY Eclipse Viewing
or Viewer.

Your camera might be OK, but there's a chance of damaging it too.
