Eclipse Glasses at Coming Events

3-D Queen

It’s the moment(s) you’ve been waiting for-eclipse viewing glasses.

We’ve run out of glasses. They are available at Amazon.com, or even at King Soopers (we saw them at the customer services desk) Make sure they are ISO certified.

Our friend Anne Holland, Community Engagement Director for the Space Science Institute, sent us a whole bunch of these glasses so you can look at the sun anytime you want on August 21 for two minutes and 40 seconds (two to three hours for the partial eclipse).

You can pick them up on the following dates at the Academy, 6500 E Girard Ave, Denver 80224.

July 25, 10 am-Noon

Aug 9, 9:30 am-2pm. Stay for the One Day Academy! FREE
