Solar eclipse glasses

Be prepared for the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st, 2017!

We have received 300 pairs of solar eclipse glasses and will be selling them for $2 per pair on Thursday, August 10th. Be sure to stop in one of our locations to pick up your pair before they’re all gone!

The actual eclipse path will pass a few hundred miles south of Michigan, so over on the west side of the state we should be able to see around 85% of the sun eclipsed by the moon. This will occur around 2:20 – 2:25 in the afternoon.

Read below for a cautionary word from NASA – it’s definitely not safe to observe a partial eclipse (like the one we will be seeing) without protecting your eyes and wearing some Solar Eclipse Glasses:

The only time that the Sun can be viewed safely with the naked eye is during a total eclipse, when the Moon completely covers the disk of the Sun. It is never safe to look at a partial or annular eclipse, or the partial phases of a total solar eclipse, without the proper equipment and techniques. Even when 99% of the Sun’s surface (the photosphere) is obscured during the partial phases of a solar eclipse, the remaining crescent Sun is still intense enough to cause a retinal burn, even though illumination levels are comparable to twilight.

If you’re unable to stop in and purchase a pair of solar eclipse glasses, you can always make a Pinhole Projector to watch the eclipse.
