On vocabulary.com, it says:

goggle
When you goggle, you stare with wide-open bug eyes. You might goggle at a monkey riding a unicycle down the main street of your town.
You may have heard of goggles — those large, plastic glasses that you use to protect your eyes while you are skiing or using a blowtorch. You might look like you are wearing goggles when you goggle at something. If you are looking for a new way to say "What are you looking at?!" Try: "What are you goggling at?!"
----
I don't understand why you might look like you are wearing goggles (i.e. wearing glasses?) when you goggle at something.

Could you please help me?
Thanks!

PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

It's a mystery to me but then I've never used "goggle" as a verb!

(In your last line, you put "I also posted the same question on this" but there was no hyperlink to take us to the other place you posted it.)
