Corona in a Pond

Anything near the sun is dangerous to view so it helps to reduce the intensity by looking at the reflection in a pond. This is obviously still too bright for the sun itself, which needs to be shielded, but it does make things like the corona safer to view.

Never look directly at the sun !   Shield the sun and use proper eye protection against the glare.
