Unsafe Glasses For The Solar Eclipse ,Buyer Beware

As we get closer to the solar eclipse there are some unsafe glasses flooding the market that, if worn could cause damage to your eyes.

These “safe glasses’ carry  safety label, but they are not safe.  According to the American Astronomical Society with more folks wanting to watch the upcoming solar eclipse, more people are trying to make money off it.

The group says that if you want to have the correct glasses  you should not be able to see anything but the sun through a safe solar filter.

MLive says that the AAS notes that close to 7 thousand libraries across the U.S.  have free eclipse glasses.  Homemade filters or regular sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sun.

Why all the excitement about this eclipse?  This will be the first coast to coast total solar eclipse that crosses the United States in 99 years.  The event takes place on August 21st.  More information on this can be found at GreatAmericanEclipse.com
