Where Can You Buy Solar Eclipse Glasses Anyway?

A solar eclipse is scheduled to hit the United States today for the first time in nearly 40 years.
A solar eclipse is a period in which the moon passes between the Earth and the sun. This wandering moon partially or fully blocks out the sun as a result of its movement relative to the position of both the sun and the Earth. This phenomenon only occurs during the period of a new moon, in which the sun and the moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth’s surface. This alignment is referred to as “syzygy,” which relates to a straight-line configuration involving at least three celestial bodies (sun, earth, moon).
The US  will experience a total solar eclipse today, Monday, August 21, 2017. The eclipse will cast a 70 miles shadow on the upper-northwest portion of Oregon at 10:00 A.M. local time. The dark shadow will travel past Idaho and Wyoming. At 2:45 P.M. (EST), the eclipse will move out through South Carolina.
According to NASA, homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses are not safe for looking at the Sun or a solar eclipse, so if you want to watch safely, you need to purchase specific ISO-compliant safe eclipse glasses. Read below to find out where you can get them!
