Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st

Map of libraries that may have free glasses:
http://spacescience.org/software/libraries/map.php

"We have distributed over 2 million free eclipse glasses and 4,000 education kits to over 7,000 library locations (public libraries, state libraries, book mobiles, tribal libraries). This represents nearly one half of all libraries in the country."

You may want to call to see if they have some left. They may only distribute them during special programs and I'm sure many are already out.

This is an interesting little animation to see what the eclipse might be like. Enter your location:
