Eclipse goes high-tech.

By now most of you probably know that a dragon is going to eat the Sun tomorrow, and even though the the United States wasn't invited to the party, we can still enjoy it thanks to the fact that we live in the fuuuuuuutuuuure.

If you are lucky enough to live in the viewing area...

Why bother with this contraption?
With modern technology, you can view tomorrow's solar eclipse without even having to leave your easy chair. (If you have a laptop, that is.)

And whatever you do, DO NOT look directly at the Sun. That's just stupid.
Doing just that rendered this eyeball's unfortunate owner blind.

I mean, I like seeing eclipses as much as the next guy, but I like seeing period even better.
