(fixed) You can watch it by using a white pad of paper, and a set of binoculars. Put the pad of paper on the ground, hold the binoculars over the paper and point them at the Sun. Wear sunglasses as well, because the image of the Sun's disk will still be very bright on the paper. You should see a spot the size of a pea moving across the Sun's image on the paper.
