Never look directly at the sun. Use appropriate eye protection. Regular sunglasses DO NOT provide any protection. Even for a partial eclipse of 99%, the sun is strong enough to burn through your retinas.
According to NASA , the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters.
