Are you looking forward to Solar Eclipse 2017?! We certainly are! That’s why I’m SO excited to tell you about how YOU can get FREE eclipse glasses and more to help you prepare for Solar Eclipse 2017!
If you haven’t already heard about it, a total solar eclipse will sweet across the United States on August 21, 2017. The solar eclipse path ranges from South Carolina to Oregon!
Get FREE solar eclipse glasses from your local library!
Solar eclipse glasses are absolutely necessary! If you look up at the eclipse without them, you can suffer serious eye damage!
While supplies last, public libraries across the United States will be distributing over 2 million pairs of solar eclipse glasses. Over 4,800 library locations are participating. You can see all the libraries that are distributing glasses here, but you will need to contact the library itself to find out when the glasses will be available.
Your local science center, college, observatory or astronomical society may also have free glasses available! For example, Hyde Observatory in Lincoln, Nebraska, is distributing FREE solar eclipse glasses on Saturdays while supplies last.
Some school districts are also distributing FREE glasses for students and staff, too! 🙂
Get FREE downloadable information from NASA!
Find the exact path of totality through your state from a trustworthy source. NASA offers national maps, state maps, fact sheets, posters, bookmarks and more! They also offer a cool activity guide full of DIY experiments that can help teach kids about the upcoming event!
