    Solar eclipse

    I'm probably too late on this question but does anyone know of anywhere locally that sells approved solar eclipse glasses? I saw some on Amazon for $44 but heard they could be bought for about $1 elsewhere. I found that site but they are all sold out.

    Compare the price of these special glasses with a pair of welder's goggles; which will probably serve the same purpose.

    I agree. I just saw some cheap eclipse glasses there recently. I'll live vicariously through photos.

    Thanks and yes, I would be a bit leery of buying them at 7-11. I will try a few of the suggestions on your link. I appreciate it!

    Walmart has them for $1. They're an approved vendor, as is 7-11. Go to https://eclipse.aas.org/resources/solar-filters for more info.
