Unless you've been living under a rock the past couple of months, you're probably aware of the upcoming total solar eclipse on Aug. 21. It's been almost 100 years since the last one touched both U.S. coasts, and we're celebrating with Space.com by giving away a spectacular Canon eclipse-capturing camera kit worth $1,099.
How to Enter
Now you may be asking yourself, "Why do I need a special camera to take pictures of the eclipse?" Because using the wrong gear can burn your retinas, causing irreparable damage to your eyes. To safely capture the event, you'll need both eye protection and solar filters for the camera, but also a zoom lens powerful enough to see the 93-million-mile-away phenomenon.
