The 2017 Solar Eclipse is a few weeks away and we are prepared with NASA recommended glasses!
We have purchased “ISO 12312-2 compliant and CE certified eclipse glasses” from American Paper Optics, one of the specific companies recommended by NASA, and they are safe for all phases of the eclipse.
Eclipse Eyeglass Safety: Don’t be Blindsided!
Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should meet all the following criteria:
- Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard
- Have the manufacturer’s name and address printed somewhere on the product
- Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses
- Not use homemade filters or be substituted for with ordinary sunglasses — not even very dark ones — because they are not safe for looking directly at the Sun
