4 bucks worth of shade 14 lenses and 25 cents worth of tape.  An old box lid flaps and an xacto knife.

Putting them away for a few years!

You forgot to write that official code number on them so you know they are real eclipse glasses.

I bought some.  They cost a little more than most, but I think it was worth it.

The reaction of the insects, cicadas, birds, etc. was wild.  They got really thrown off.  I can fully see why civilizations may have reacted with extremes to solar eclipses.  

Seeing it in person and the way the like was coming out like a gas was incredible.  I always thought most photos where doctored a bit to make them more visually stunning.  Turns out, it is not needed at all.
