If you’re excited for the upcoming 2023 solar eclipse, you’re not alone! The last annular eclipse that was visible in the U.S. was on May 20, 2012, so this is a huge celestial occasion. Now is the time to mark October 14, 2023 on your calendar and start preparing for the event. 

Whether you’re hosting a viewing party with your friends and family, your employees, or any of your fellow skygazers who decide to show up, our custom solar eclipse glasses will allow you to view the incredible spectacle safely and in style.

See the Ring of Fire

This very special eclipse is not to be missed! The 2023 solar eclipse is an annular eclipse, which many enthusiasts agree is the most astonishing kind! Annular eclipses are especially breathtaking because unlike a total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, you’ll get to see the “ring of fire” surrounding the moon! It’s truly an otherworldly experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Get Prepared With ISO and CE-Certified Viewing Shades

An eclipse is a magnificent sight, but viewing it can be dangerous if you don’t take the proper precautions. It’s absolutely imperative that you only use eclipse glasses that meet all safety standards when viewing the 2023 solar eclipse.

Our solar viewers are trusted by NASA and the AAS, because they’re ISO and CE-certified, meaning they meet the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015 and the transmission requirements for scale 12-16 of EN 169/1992. All of our Eclipse Shades® also meet the 2012 Transmission Requirements of EN 1836:2005 and AS/NZS 1338.1:1992 for eclipse filters (Queensland Directive). Crafted from innovative, scratch-resistance black polymer material, you can depend on the lenses to filter out all harmful infrared and ultraviolet light. They also shield your eyes from 99.999% of high-intensity visible light.

Customize Eclipse Glasses With Your Company’s Branding

The 2023 solar eclipse is more than just a momentous celestial event; it’s an opportunity for businesses to get their teams excited about science and nature using some highly engaging promotional materials. If you remember the last total solar eclipse in August of 2017, you know that eclipse viewers tend to sell out fast. That’s why now is the time to stock up, before it’s too late!

Businesses looking to stand out from the crowd would be wise to customize eclipse glasses or viewers with their branding. Not only will these shades attract attention on the night of the eclipse, but they can be reused over and over, long after the 2023 solar eclipse has come and gone, including for the total eclipse on April 8, 2024. 

Unlike fliers, business cards, brochures, and other boring marketing materials, people will be delighted to receive their eclipse glasses, and they’ll hold onto them and share them, spreading brand awareness every time.
