Review: Solar Eclipse Glasses

I am SO EXCITED for the this year’s solar eclipse! I am going to be in Joplin, Missouri which unfortunately isn’t a part of the full coverage path, so I am planning to drive to St Louis. My family is taking the day off to drive down and we are going to watch it together. Please let there be amazing beautiful weather!

Needless to say I was really excited to have the opportunity to get a 10 pack of solar eclipse glasses for free so that I could try them out and review them. During the last eclipse (partial, the night of my college graduation party) one of my friends brought a pair of eclipse glasses. Before this, I had no idea that you even needed special glasses to view an eclipse.

I was so excited when the package arrived. Getting this product awoke the inner nerd in me.

The package came with ten pairs. I saved pairs for my immediate family and have been using the additional pairs for bribery. JK I have been giving them to fellow space nerds.

It was dark when I received them so I tried a pair out against the light. It was a really bright shiny light that I couldn’t look into (just like the sun!!) so it was neat to see what kind of effect they’ll have on the day of the eclipse.

Here is a picture of my brother and I showing off our extreme fashion! Since I received these glasses, they had sold out or have had the price increase significantly. Here is the link in case you want to check, but the last time I looked it was down. I am so glad that I was able to receive these for free from my blog and pass them along to friends and family.

    I saw solar eclipse glasses for the first time on the news this week, I had no idea they were a thing! It totally make sense though since you’re not supposed to look straight into the sun. My Dad loves astronomy and is planning on driving down to the eclipse path line, he could definitely use a pair!
