Business Blooming from Solar Eclipse this August

This August, the entire North American continent will witness a solar eclipse lasting for 2 to 3 hours. Hopkinsville, a city in Kentucky is would experience the longest duration of the solar eclipse on August 21. Around thirty two thousand people are expected to watch the eclipse from this rural area. This would be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many Americans, thanks to solar eclipse glasses.

Looking directly at the sun during the eclipse is extremely unsafe and could cause solar retinopathy – a painless condition in which the retina is damaged by staring at the sun. Considering the partial and total eclipse are a spectacular sights to look at, NASA in partnership with the American Astronomical Society has verified the manufacturing of glasses specially used to protect the eyes from the damage the eclipse could cause. The companies verified to make these glasses include the American Paper Optics, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical, TSE 17, and Baader Planetarium.

NASA this week warned people to only settle for glasses certified with a designated ISO reference number 12312-2. They must have the name and address of the manufacturer printed it, and these glasses should not be older than 3 years with scratched or wrinkled lenses.

American Paper Optics, has produced over 37 million glasses for the most anticipated eclipse and is shipping around 500,000 glasses daily. This American company is witnessing a soar in its production with the increasing demand from enthusiastic Americans and organizations, who are ordering customized glasses in bulk. NASA, Walmart, Lowes, and Amazon are some of the renowned clients buying these glasses.

The craze to witness the eclipse this August, which would only be experienced after another 100 years has set the craze amongst commoners to own a pair of the solar eclipse glasses to enjoy the view of the eclipse and some stars and planets in the background.
