Glasses out of stock?

DO NOT use your eclipse glasses from previous eclipses. The glasses do expire and you will be at risk of permanent eye damage.

How to Make Your Own

If you can't make it to an eclipse event and the front desk is out of glasses, you can make your own eclipse viewer!

How to Buy Eclipse Glasses

You can also purchase eclipse glasses from a number of stores.

Be aware that many online sellers offer cheap glasses that do not meet safety standards. Eclipse glasses should conform to the ISO 12312-2 standard for solar viewers.

The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable stores that carry ISO-compliant eclipse glasses! Examples include Meijer, Menards, and Cracker Barrel.
