Eclipse Safety Glasses
In Marshall, MO, we are committed to bringing the wonder of the eclipse to everyone - safely!
Looking directly at the Sun is unsafe, except during the brief 2 minutes and 39 seconds of totality, when the moon entirely blocks the Sun. The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as eclipse glasses. Homemade filters or sunglasses, even very dark ones, are NOT safe for looking at the Sun.
Please remember, IT IS NEVER SAFE TO LOOK AT THE SUN WITHOUT PROTECTION AT ANY TIME WHEN ANY PART OF ITS BRIGHT DISK IS VISIBLE.
Thanks to our sponsors, every school aged child in Saline county will be provided a free pair of eclipse safety glasses. In addition, eclipse safety glasses will be available for purchase throughout Marshall during the eclipse weekend, August 19 – August 21, including all preferred viewing sites and camping locations.

In January, our generous sponsors ordered over 40,000 pair of eclipse safety glasses to be sold at retail locations throughout Marshall and to be donated to Saline County schools. However, due to high demand, we are currently sold out. However, we have reserved a supply of glasses for our preferred viewing sites. They will be available on a first come, first served basis at all Preferred Viewing Sites on August 21st at $1.00 per pair .
Proceeds from all sales benefit the Fitzgibbon Hospital Foundation. Thank you for your consideration..
