Don’t Have Eclipse Glasses? Grab a Kitchen Colander. — Food News

Right now across North America we're slowly experiencing a solar eclipse. If you're in the "path of totality" — where the moon blocks out the sun — you'll experience a true natural phenomenon. There's one catch, though: In order to see this awe-inspiring sight, you're going to need a special pair of glasses or pinhole projector to protect your eyeballs (unless you're cool with losing your eyesight).
