A Samburu woman uses a piece of smoked glass to gaze at an annular solar eclipse at Archer's Post, Nairobi, on October 3, 2005. Eye protection is mandatory for viewing a partial or total eclipse looking directly at the sun through a telescope or binoculars, or with the naked eye can cause serious vision damage and possibly permanent blindness.
