If you purchased eclipse glasses from our museum gift shop, which we started selling at the end of October, 2023, please note that we have been advised even though they have the registered trademark ISO label on them and therefore are probably safe, it is better to use only glasses that have the ISO certfication number on them:  ISO 12312-2:2015.   If you would like to return any you purchased, we will be happy to refund the amount of your purchase.  We apologize for this oversight.
