The Great American Solar Eclipse
The Great American Solar Eclipse is happening on Monday August 21, 2017. It is expected we will see about 92% eclipse through the metro area. This is a once in a life time experience, the last time this occured was 99 years aog. As you know, it is really important to have the proper eye protection in order to look directly at the eclipse. If you do not have the proper protection you can do major damage to your eyes. Below I have compiled a few reources you can use to find places to purchase the safelty glasses or maybe get them for free.
The Denver Museum of Nature and Science will be hosting an Eclipse Day and they will be having some great events. They also have access to glasses for purchase in the gift shop of the Museum. You can click here to view more information.
9news has been offering free glasses and metro area Grease Monkey locations, they are also doing a give away Thursday and Friday you can get more details if you click here.
Local Libraries will be offering free glasses first come first serve over the weekend. Check with your local Library branch for details.
You can also check the American Astronomical Society's website for reputable vendors selling the glasses, check it out here.
Enjoy this great phenomenon and do it safely!!
