Just a reminder.
Whether looking at an eclipse for images of the Virgin Mary, or any other reason, it is dangerous to look directly at the sun. Temporary eye pain and permanent vision loss can result. Even sunglasses are not sufficient, unless they are a very particular type. Ask your eye doctor for more information about this if you need it.
