The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse will pass across the continental US and its complete totality will be within 100 miles of Fort Scott.

For more information on how to watch the eclipse safely, click this link. Anyone who is concerned about their eclipse glasses but did not receive an email about the recall can reach out to Amazon customer service.

The lens caps had the proper ISO number, 12312-2, which has been verified to comply with worldwide safety standards.

According to Ramsden, that may be your only option to purchase glasses at this stage. Fortunately, several brick-and-mortar retailers are more than happy to help you out, particularly if you're in the path of totality.

Gracison Saylors has never seen a solar eclipse.

The company also said it will refund the balance paid for any glasses not confirmed to be safe.

Why is it that we only see a partial eclipse in MA? To enjoy the eclipse and protect your peepers, you'll need a pair of specially made glasses that effectively block out the rays.


The district says students will have the opportunity to view the eclipse either indirectly or via video live streaming. You need to wear them whenever you look at the sun.

This also applies to looking through a camera lens or binoculars.

You can make a quick and low-cost solar filter for your cell phone camera by simply taking an extra pair of solar viewing glasses and trimming out the solar film portion to place over your camera lens on your phone. See our video on how to do this here.

ABC 17 News is across the country, from OR, to mid-Missouri, and SC following the path of totality. Direct viewing can cause damage to the retina, called solar retinopathy.

Where can you buy real solar eclipse glasses?

"It's not a time to panic", he said.

Without approved eclipse sunglasses, people and pets are at risk of blindness.
