The glasses you'll need to view next month's solar eclipse are in high demand


Good morning. I'm A Martínez. In one month, a total solar eclipse will travel across a huge swath of North America, and the glasses you'll need to view it are in high demand. E-commerce watcher Pattern reports prices have increased since last fall's solar eclipse. Back then, a pair of solar eclipse glasses cost about 16 bucks. Now they're more like 20, so you might want to buy now, because the next total solar eclipse to grace North America isn't for another 20 years or the other option, just look away. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
