Save 33% and get two solar glasses that meet ISO 12312-2:2015 standards, made by a manufacturer that the AAS approves. These glasses will arrive in time for the April 8 total solar eclipse and will mean you can view it safely. 

The material of the lenses is a scratch-resistant silver polymer that filters out 100% of harmful light. That means you can view the total eclipse directly and with total confidence that you won't damage your eyes in the process. We recommend that you check your glasses aren't damaged before use, as direct solar observation without protection can cause serious eye damage. 

Next month's solar eclipse is known as a total eclipse, meaning the moon will completely block out the sun for a short period, a period is known as "totality." But you must use a form of ISO-certified solar protection, as looking directly at the sun outside of this brief moment can cause a lot of damage to your sight. Getting a pair of Soluna's solar glasses is a worthwhile investment, as it means both you and someone close to you can view the rare phenomenon safely, and a two-pack costs under $10

Key Specs: Scratch-resistant polymer solar lens, ISO 12312-2:2015 certified, made by a manufacturer approved by the AAS, will arrive in time for the event of April 8 and is 33% off. 

Consensus: These are an ideal choice for people who want to view next month's solar eclipse safely but don't want to spend too much in doing so, or aren't too fussed about seeing sunspots or viewing it in a lot of detail. 

Buy if: You want to view the solar eclipse safely, but you don't want to spend too much money in doing so. 

Don't buy if: You want a specific solar viewing kit that will allow you much closer views of the eclipse, like a specialist telescope or pair of binoculars.
