These glasses will help me be able to see the first solar eclipse in 38 years and be comfortable while I am doing it. The glasses came and I took them out of the bag to see just what they were actually like. They were individually packaged – all 10 of them – and appear to be well made. I was surprised to see that the ‘lenses’ part of the glasses actually looked like smooth, thick aluminum foil to me. I guess I expected them to look more like green plastic sunglass lenses. The glasses themselves are cardboard and in red, white and blue colors. They look fun and festive.
What I really like about these eclipse glasses, apart from being able to see the eclipse, is that they are also keepsakes. There is a place on the inside of the glasses to put your name and mark the time you got to see the eclipse. I am aware that you can only look directly at the sun for no more than 3 minutes at a time with these, but it sure beats staring through old negatives, which a lot of folks in this digital age don’t even have lying around anymore.
