As if you haven’t heard, there will be a total solar eclipse on Aug. 21. Denver won’t witness 100 percent coverage of the sun, but we’ll come close. Before you look up, be sure to protect your eyes by wearing special ISOcertified solar eclipse glasses. A regular pair of sunglasses won’t cut it. Many public libraries are giving away the free glasses.
