O)n Monday's show (August 14), I'll talk with a representative of the Science Center Of Iowa about all the eclipse-related activities at the center. They've got a lot of great stuff going on - and you can even stare directly at the radio while I talk.
You probably heard me say on the show that I didn't know that "eclipse glasses" were a thing until my wife ordered some. So we'll be able to take a good look at the eclipse - where we live, 95% of the sun is expected to be covered.
But for every big event, there's apparently a scammer trying to make some money off of it. "Pirated eclipse glasses" are apparently for sale. USA Today has the details on how to avoid these rip-off glasses and the accompanying chance of blindness that comes with them.
