The Post and Courier ran an article today warning people to make sure the glasses they have purchased are safe for viewing the eclipse on August 21.
Don’t be fooled by the glasses having just the ISO marking. One Tidelines editor checked her glasses with the suggested ones that the American Astronomical Society recommends per the P&C article. The manufacturer’s name was similar to one on their website. This morning, Amazon notified her that the ones she purchased through them cannot be verified as safe by Amazon and is refunding her money, even though they have the ISO sign.
The important point here is to double check the glasses you purchased.
