Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.
  • Glasses will be available starting on April 1.
  • Limited to one pair of glasses per household.
  • Supplies are limited.
  • Once the Library is out, we are out!

The American Astronomical Society has a list of North American manufacturers or importers of solar filter glasses and films here. Glasses are available through other major retailers such as Walmart, Target, Amazon and HEB. For your safety, it is recommended to verify that your solar filter glasses are from a safe and trusted source.

Other ways to view the eclipse safely:

  • Use a colander!
  • Use a sheet of paper with a pinhole through it.
  • Create a pinhole viewer using a cereal box or shoe box.
