It's the science event of a lifetime. I'm talking about the Solar Eclipse taking place on Monday. Day will turn to night for a brief period of time.

According to,  if you want to take a selfie with the eclipse you're going to need a special lens. If you take a photo from behind one of the special eclipse glasses, that will work, but lets be're gonna look kinda funny. If you use the camera on your phone, you could damage your sensor on your phone.

Experts say just put a pen through a piece of cardboard and let the sun come through it onto a piece of paper. Problem solved.

Like my mom has always said..."If you look at the sun during a eclipse you might go blind but not if you eat a whole onion!" I hate onions.
