For an Eclipse, Safe Solar Eclipse Glasses Are Needed
Solar eclipses do not happen often in the United States. The last one occurred in 1979 and the next one will occur in 2017. Total eclipses of the sun are rare and occur when the moon passes between the earth and the sun. Daytime turns into nighttime for a short period of time, and it is a must-see experience. Knowing that it is such a rare occurrence makes it one that many people look to with anticipation. To view the eclipse all you need is a pair of safe solar eclipse glasses – like the ones at American Paper Optics – and you're all ready to go!
Eclipse Glasses Keep Your Experience Safe
The next total eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017, and the longest duration of totality (full coverage of the sun) will be approximately two minutes and 44 seconds. Those living just south of Carbondale, Illinois, will be able to see the eclipse for that longest period of time, with the rest of those in its path seeing a shorter duration of the event. It is expected that approximately 100 million people in the United States will see the sun covered by at least 90%, which is an amazing fact.
Regardless of where you are viewing the eclipse from, you will need a pair of safe solar eclipse glasses like the ones found on our website. We offer a wide variety of glasses, in numerous styles and designs. We sell both plastic, and paper glasses with designs that include the American flag, sun and moon designs, and basic solid colors. Our glasses are made with a scratch-resistant black polymer material and block out 100% of infrared and ultra-violent light as well as over 99% of intense visible light. They contain filters that create a sharp solar image, and a natural orange color. All of our paper glasses include safety instructions on the back of each pair of our glasses.
Eclipse Glasses that are Reasonably Priced
At Eclipse Glasses, you don't have to buy a lot of glasses just to qualify for our low prices. We sell our glasses in groups of 25, and our prices are reasonable regardless of how many you purchase.
