Proper eye protection is a must for anyone looking up at a solar eclipse; eclipse glasses are far darker than regular sunglasses.

Over the next seventy-two hours, Angelenos will travel all over the country to cities and states in the once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse’s path of totality. 

We’ll speak with them live on Monday as the eclipse peaks here in southern California. In the meantime, we talk with science writer John Dvorak, who has been following the eclipse's path for the last week, about what how people are preparing and what to expect from what is said to be a life-changing event. 

Guest: 

John Dvorak, a tech writer and author of numerous books, including his latest, “Mask of the Sun: The Science, History and Forgotten Lore of Eclipses” (Pegasus Books, 2017)
