Finding Safe Viewing Eclipse Glasses
As each day passes, it’s becoming harder to find reputable suppliers of safe viewing eclipse glasses. But, if you visit the American Astronomical Society’s Reputable Vendors page, you will find a list of re-sellers who may still have eclipse glasses in stock. But even these supplies won’t last much longer now that the American population has awakened to the fact that there’s a solar eclipse coming in just a few days!
If you are unable to find safe eclipse glasses, below are some alternatives in which you can indirectly view the eclipse. These pinhole viewing methods can be made with normal household items and are a lot of fun for younger kids.
Over 2.1 Million Safe Eclipse Glasses Distributed
The STAR Library Network (STAR_Net), with support from the Moore Foundation, Google, NASA, the Research Corporation, and NSF, has distributed over 2.1 million safe eclipse glasses to 7,000 unique locations including public library branches, bookmobiles, tribal libraries, library consortia, and state libraries in all 50 states!
Note: The eclipse glasses that libraries are distributing throughout the U.S. are for their eclipse events only.
