I certainly wouldn't be risk my eyesight with a pair of Dollar Store glasses. That is a harmful suggestion.

If you have a telescope or just binoculars, you can project the suns image onto a white piece of cardboard or paper and view a clear image safely.

I did this in Norfolk, VA in 1970 and Columbia SC in 2017. You should have seen crowd that hung around my projection screen in SC.

You don't need a telescope or binoculars, you can just make a pinhole in a piece of cardboard and project it onto a surface. Or use a colander.
I definitely wouldn't use dollar store "eclipse glasses".

That is true Mudgirl, but it is an outline of the sun with the moon moving over it. It is not an actual image with sunspots, flares, etc. You need a scope or binoculars for that.

What ever you have or can find including the pinhole method go for it as it is event that will not be repeated in our lifetimes.

No glasses, but...an eclipse in a box: pinhole projection.
