According to the astronomers, no special glasses are required to watch Chandra Grahan and it is totally safe to watch with naked eyes.
In the case of a partial lunar eclipse, though the phenomenon can be watched with naked eyes, it is however recommended to use binoculars or telescopes to see a lunar eclipse.
