The Space Science Institute (SSI) was recently awarded a grant from the Moore Foundation that will provide 1.26 million solar viewing glasses and other resources for 1,500 public libraries across the nation. These libraries will serve as centers for eclipse education and viewing for their communities.
“We’re pleased to help two million eyes enjoy and understand this astronomical spectacle with astronomical spectacles,”
– Robert Kirshner, Ph.D., Chief Program Officer – Moore Foundation
