Free solar eclipse viewing glasses available at Penn Dixie

Penn Dixie is offering free solar eclipse viewing glasses to the public, thanks to NASA and SUNY Buffalo State.

The glasses allow a person to look through them directly at the sun, which allows individuals to safely view the Aug. 21 eclipse of the sun. The glasses look like the old-fashioned 3D glasses worn to see 3D movies.

Visitors can pick up a limited number of the free glasses at Penn Dixie during normal business hours.

Penn Dixie will host a viewing of the eclipse from 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 21, and visitors will be able to view the eclipse through several telescopes, learn astronomy from the staff and volunteers, participate in hands-on science activities and collect fossils. Admission is $4 and includes the free solar viewing glasses.
