I'll be heading down to SC along with AccuWeather's Reed Timmer to cover the eclipse.
Amazon appears to have been cracking down on these suspect glasses.
Check the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers link, https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters, for a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that are verified to comply with ISO 12312-2, global safety standard for these products.
" Before looking up at the bright sun, stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer". Viewing the sun or an eclipse using any other glasses or filters could result in loss of vision or permanent blindness.
The product, and the seller, have been removed from Amazon. Manufacturers also had to give them a list of companies authorized to resell the glasses. If they don't, then you may have been scammed. The notification also says that customers don't need to return the glasses in order to get a refund. Nearly every company listed on that page is sold out (even the ones that don't say sold out).
You can find the glasses at online vendors including EclipseGlasses.com, Celestron, Explore Scientific and Meade Instruments. Call ahead to ensure they still have glasses. Your total will be $12, which isn't a great deal but you should have them in time. As a father, I'm even more concerned. This ever-changing region grows and shrinks based on solar conditions، and researchers will use the eclipse as a ready-made experiment.
The team will also be able to get unique and wonderful features such as "Diamond Ring" and "Bailys' Beads" - which happens as pinpoints of light are passed through the uneven features and craters of the Moon when the moon is covering the sun.The experiments will include studying the corona of the Sun which is only visible during an eclipse.
Eclipse viewing glasses also will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis on the library plaza, the news release said.
