Best Souvenir Buy


I really liked this post card and it makes a fine addition to the collection on the walls inside the
Little House on the Highway.

I was concerned about buying some glasses to safely view the eclipse by.  I figured there will be vendors all up and down the eclipse path hawking cheap Made in China viewing glasses and I certainly am not trusting the Chinese in protecting my eyeballs from the sun's glare.
So I was very happy to see these were made in the good old U S of A.

  1. What a nice postcard. Good luck with your viewing. The eclipse will be at 70% here in my corner of Canada.

  2. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – NASA issued a warning Thursday to let people know unsafe eclipse glasses are being distributed by “unscrupulous companies.”

    The space agency recommends only using eclipse glasses with ISO 12312-2 printed on them that have been printed by the four following companies:

    American Paper Optics, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17

    NASA says buying your eclipse glasses on Amazon does not ensure their safety.

    “Make sure to check your eclipse glasses and viewers to verify that they have the correct ISO designation and were manufactured by one of the four companies recognized by NASA as legitimate,” the agency noted."
