SAFE Solar Viewing Glasses!

So now there are enough scammers out there on Amazon that NASA had to issue a warning about Solar Viewing Glasses.  Teton Mountaineering has only had glasses from Rainbow Symphony.  (One of the approved manufacturers of glasses)  Mike has had a relationship with Rainbow Symphony for years through the Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project.  These are the same glasses that the Jackson Hole Astronomy Club donated to the students of Teton County Public Schools.  

Yes, we are selling them for only $1.95 each (which is MSRP), but we are GIVING them away, one with every $50 of Purchase.  We know those of you that have purchased from us in the past, so if you haven't picked some up yet, Please Swing by to pick up what you need for you and your family.

Eclipse Eyeglass Safety: Don’t be Blindsided! 

Plan ahead to decide if you’re going to make use of an indirect viewing method – more information below – or to watch the eclipse directly by using eclipse glasses. If the latter, please check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet basic proper safety viewing standards.
 
Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should meet all the following criteria:

  •     Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard
  •     Have the manufacturer’s name and address printed somewhere on the product
  •     Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses
  •     Not use homemade filters or be substituted for with ordinary sunglasses -- not even very dark ones -- because they are not safe for looking directly at the Sun

Our partner the American Astronomical Society has verified that these five manufacturers are making eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers that meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard for such products: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium (AstroSolar Silver/Gold film only), Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17.
