Solar Eclipse Glasses from the ASTRONOMICAL LEAGUE !

Experience the beauty, the wonder, and the mystery

The celestial event of a generation arrives April 8, 2024. View the incredible total solar eclipse safely with a pair of commemorative solar eclipse glasses from the ASTRONOMICAL LEAGUE!

Each total solar eclipse is unique, all are impressive

Are you ready? Do you have equipment for safely viewing the eclipse and the sun? Solar eclipse glasses are one inexpensive way to safely view the eclipse, and the BEST way to share the event with a group. These glasses are ideal for visually observing large sunspots on the face of the sun, partial solar eclipses, annular solar eclipses, and the partial phases of total solar eclipses.

Discounts for as few as 10 and huge discounts for ordering 500 or 1000. Distribute them at solar events! The more you purchase, the better the price! They can be personalized for keepsakes. Order early to insure availability!

Nominal shipping charges will be added to all orders under 1000 glasses. For those orders of 1000 glasses and over, shipping is included in the price to USA addresses.


Wear them as you would your normal sunglasses. You may safely gaze directly at the sun with these glasses since the filters block at 99.9999% of the sun’s visible light and all of its harmful infrared and ultraviolet light.

  • If the filters have pinholes, or are damaged in any way, do not attempt to look at the sun with them.
  • Do not use the solar eclipse glasses with binoculars or a telescope! Eye damage may result.
  • Never look at the sun without the proper filters! If you do, you may not realize it, but you are damaging your vision. You may not feel immediate pain.
