Please note: Unfortunately we do not have any eclipse glasses available at this time. To make sure your eclipse glasses are safe (carry the ISO 12312-2 safety certification) please make sure to read the guidelines here. Eye protection must be used at ALL times during the partial solar eclipse in Charlotte, NC.
