A highly-anticipated total solar eclipse is set to cut a path across a large portion of the United States on August 21, but not everyone has the proper gear to see it safely.
But some organizations want to change that.
The company Mystery Science and Google just announced a partnership to provide 15,000 free eclipse glasses to elementary schools so that kids around the country can safely view the event.
Both kids and adults need eclipse glasses to filter the sun's strong light. The glasses use solar filters, not just color films like your everyday sunglasses, to protect your eyes. The only time it's safe to look without your eclipse glasses is during the brief period of total eclipse, when the moon totally covers the face of the sun.

Some unsavory manufacturers have been flooding the market with glasses that don’t necessarily meet the minimum safety standards. Since staring at the sun during an eclipse (or ever, really) can result in severe eye damage or blindness, this is kind of a big deal, which is why Amazon said on Sunday that it is offering refunds to anyone who bought glasses on Amazon that “may not comply with industry standards.” The e-commerce giant has also removed a few listings for glasses on its website “out of an abundance of caution,” per Oregon’s KGW news.
