If your received a set of eclipse viewing glasses through our Crossing Paths: Earth + Moon, Art + Science project, please DO NOT USE these for viewing the eclipse. We ordered these glasses through Amazon and received the following safety alert: “Amazon has not received confirmation from the supplier of your order that they sourced the item from a recommended manufacturer. We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse.” See this NASA webpage and this Chicago Tribune article for more information. Even if you didn’t receive safety glasses from us, please pass this information to everyone you know who is viewing the eclipse.
