PLEASE REMEMBER: You need special glasses if you plan to watch the partial eclipse as it crosses our region. Regular sunglasses are NOT sufficient. You could do serious damage to your eyes without the proper protection.

These can be picked up for free at the National Air and Space Museum, the National Zoo, and a number of different public libraries across our region. You can also buy them from sites such as Amazon and Walmart, but be careful when you're buying online. NASA recently issued a warning about fake glasses that won't protect your eyes properly.
