Solar Eclipse: August 21

Earth/Sky News reports well have a solar eclipse next month. The first one since 1991. Whether we'll be able to see it from here, I'm not sure, but looks like it will be close. Let's think ahead for eclipse activities. I was thinking we could all hold hands in the street and sing kumbaya, or maybe this would be the perfect time for human sacrifices?

in 91 i watched eclipse from outside santa rosa while working . used welders goggles and it worked great .
anso punched hole in small dark box for kids trying to watch and reflection inside box looked just like the sun only no damage to your eyes

I wrote earlier on here that, when in Saudi Arabia, I could look straight at the sun with no protection because of all the smoke in the air from the Kuwaiti oil fires.

Even noticed a couple sunspots which I confirmed with binoculars.
