    Why Did I Get Such A Bad Headache From Briefly Looking At The Sun Today? So today i looked up at the sun but it wasnt for that long, maybe 5 seconds…right away i felt pain in my head and as the day went on, it turned into a massive headache…by the time i got home from school, my headache was horrible…just moving my eyes around a room gave me this bad sore pain in my forehead, and i was sensitive to any light to the point where i was going to throw up because i felt so bad….it also made my headache worse to look at a screen of any kind….eye strain maybe? I know youre not supposed to look at the sun, and i never do, i guess i just wasnt thinking about what i was doing…later i learned that its really realy bad to look at the sun during a solar eclipse, and theres gonna be one in less than two days….is there a connection between the solar eclipse and my massive headache, or is it just a concidence? And if theres a connection, why did this happen?

    Is It Bad To Take Photos Of The Solar Eclipse Or Transit Of Venus With A D-SLR Directly Pointed At The Sun? I have not done it yet. There is a Transit of Venus next month which I am very anxious to take photos of. However, would it harm my camera?

    Can someone also provide tips for how to take such pictures?
