Homework Help: Science

Posted by Jenna on Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 11:44am.

I am reading about partial solar eclipses, and my book has this warning:

CAUTION:Looking directly at even a tiny sliver of the sun during a solar eclipse can damage your eyesight permanently.

Why do they give this warning specifically for eclipses? Is the sun more harmful to look at during an eclipse than during a normal day?
