Already bought your glasses to see the solar eclipse? "It's not coming from the retailer, it's coming from Amazon because they can't verify that that manufacturer has that certification'". Those concerned they may have a non-compliant product can still reach out to Amazon's customer service for a refund under the A-to-z Guarantee.

Espenak recommends that people stick to the AAS's approved list of 12 companies that manufacture and/or sell eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers, which have been verified by an accredited testing laboratory to meet the ISO 12312-2 global safety standard. "We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on Amazon.com and eclipse glasses sold on Amazon.com are required to comply with the relevant ISO standard".

Stores say they may not have more glasses in by the time the eclipse happens on August 21st but to check with the store you are wanting to purchase the glasses from. In the email, Amazon said the supplier could not confirm if the item came from a recommended manufacturer.

The company also sent the notification about solar eclipse glasses to others, according to KGW.

Those who have purchased special glasses to protect their eyes from solar rays-as well as those who have not!-should check NASA's indications on how to watch the eclipse safely. As the big event nears, demand for solar glasses is at an all-time high and an alarming number of fake glasses have entered the market.

Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins
The Minnesota Twins are not going away in the American League Central race as the team has turned on the jets the last few weeks. Justin Upton showed off some of that power Saturday with a walk-off two-run homer to give the Tigers a 12-11 win over the Twins.

Don't try looking at the eclipse with normal sunglasses or home-made filters either. "Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight", warns the American Astronomical Society (AAS).

Some reputable manufacturers include TSE-17, American Paper Optics and Celestron.

The AAS and NASA have posted a list of reputable solar filter brands, retail distributors and online dealers.

Some McDonald's locations outside of OR - including Missouri and Washington - are also selling eclipse glasses.
