Rainbow Symphony was founded by a passionate eclipse chaser, so inevitably, our eclipse glasses are some of our favorite items. We’ve poured our excitement for scientific discovery and our love for solar viewing into these glasses to ensure the safest means to view any solar event. Explore our selection of eclipse sunglasses, solar viewers, and other accessories.
Safe and Effective Eclipse Glasses
A solar eclipse is a jaw-dropping sight for people of all ages, but it can be dangerous without the aid of proper viewing equipment.
To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation during exciting solar events, choose the eclipse glasses trusted by the AAS and NASA, and that meet the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015. These glasses are "CE" Certified and meet the transmission requirements of scale 12-16 of EN 169/1992 for absolutely safe direct solar viewing. All of our eclipse sunglasses meet the 2012 Transmission Requirements of EN 1836:2005 and AS/NZS 1338.1:1992 for eclipse filters (Queensland Directive).
The lenses on these specialty solar viewers are made of exclusive scratch-resistant material with grade five optical density to guarantee ultimate protection from harmful solar radiation. The “Black Polymer” filters out 100% of ultraviolet light and infrared light, as well as 99.999% of intense visible light. The premium filters on the lenses create an orange-colored image of the sun that is sharper and easier to see.
Eclipse Shades For Every Style and Budget
Our line of eclipse glasses and solar eclipse viewer cards provide options for all different classrooms and budget sizes. For a smaller group –– or one that is amenable to sharing, we offer Plastic Eclipse Glasses in both that fit over optical glasses and wrap-around goggle variations. For a less expensive alternative, educators will find great value in our paper Eclipse Shades® Safe Solar Glasses.
