Good newsy podcast

Eclipse

Watching this eclipse does not make scientist. It is a very temporary item we do not become totally dark

I agree that watching this is very dangerous if not properly protected. Probably better left alone. Let the real scientist view this and write on it. It happens across the world a lot more often than 300 times in 2000 years.
