Enjoy the Great American Eclipse!

The "Great American Eclipse" will take place on August 21, 2017. This will be the first i\time in U.S. history that a total solar eclipse will make landfall exclusively on U.S. soil, meaning it will not be visible from any other country. And this is the first time a total solar eclipse has gone from one American coast to the other since 1918! This eclipse will be the most viewed LIVE ever! More than 10 million people are in the path of totality! Thank you all for stopping by, calling and emailing us! We are completely out of glasses.You can still check out our INFORMATION BROCHURE. Be safe and enjoy this once in a lifetime event!!
