List Of Nasa Certified Eclipse Glasses Retailers | 2017:
If you're looking for a list of NASA certified eclipse glasses retailers, here is the updated list for this August 2017's total solar eclipse!
When it comes to safely viewing a solar eclipse who better to give advice than NASA. If you're looking, here is a list of the NASA certified eclipse glasses retailers!
On the Nasa website's Eclipse 101 list, they state:
"The only safe way to look directly at the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” (example shown at left) or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun."
To date only five manufacturers have a certified ISO 12312-2 international standard on their eclipse glasses as well as their handheld solar viewers.

- 2.) Rainbow Symphony
- 3.) American Paper Optics
- 3.) Other Providers
Have You Heard That You Can Watch The Eclipse With Welder's Masks?
You can! But with a warning: Do not attempt to use these filters behind a pair of binoculars or telescope (that is, between your eyes and the binoculars or telescope). The magnifying optics of these devices will focus the full power of the Sun onto the welder's filter which could crack and shatter from the intense heat after only a few minutes. Yikes!
Kids Solar Eclipse Glasses & Gear
Little children typically won’t stare at the Sun because it hurts their eyes too much. However, as the eclipse happens and sunlight dims, it will not hurt as much as normal. As a result, you must closely monitor children to make sure they do not risk damaging their eyes by staring at the Sun during the partial phases of the eclipse.
