News 2 is partnering with Shades of Charleston in giving away thousands of ISO certified glasses before the total solar eclipse August 21. The moon goes around the Earth, the Earth goes around the sun, we know those periods very precisely.

Watson Davis, an editor for the nonprofit communications initiative Science Service, radioed down a description of the airship's view after some transmission interference. The event is free to those who pre-registered.
