NASA shared a warning for the new solar eclipse


5/5 - (2 votes)

A new solar eclipse in North America has prompted NASA to take action. The space agency is urging people not to look at the Sun without glasses and also not to point their phone cameras directly at the Sun.

NASA: Don’t try to capture the eclipse with your phone
According to NASA photographer Bill Ingalls, trying to photograph the eclipse without protecting the phone can damage the device. Phone sensors, like normal camera sensors, can be damaged by the intense light of the sun.

In this context, NASA recommends using a specially designed solar filter when photographing the eclipse. On the other hand, putting eclipse glasses in front of the phone’s camera does not provide enough protection.
In a statement shared on the subject, NASA said, “If the phone sensor is pointed directly at the Sun, it can be damaged like any other image sensor. This is especially true if you use any kind of magnifying lens on the phone. As with other cameras, you need to use the appropriate filters.”

The heat from the sun’s rays can cause phone cameras to overheat and melt their internal structure. Users who want to capture the total eclipse should purchase the special filter before recording the sun, NASA said.

On April 8, the total solar eclipse will be visible from Mexico, the eastern regions of the United States (US) and Canada. In other words, it will not be possible to follow it live in our country.
