You are very clever:) 

It can be a great and fun marketing tool to give your clients solar eclipse glasses.

No, we are not going to be in the path, just going to see a partial if the marine layer is not around.  I have been informed that you can take a great picture using an iPhone through a telescope...

We bought ours several weeks ago when they were plentiful. Now I hear people are buying counterfeit glasses!

I watched the 1979 eclipse in Michigan and we used cardboard with a pin hole in it.

Be careful!! There was a report this morning that retailers are selling unapproved solar eclipse glasses, and using them could be dangerous for your eyes and damage your vision.

I was thinking of ordering a batch of them from bhphoto to give away to people who visited my open house, or somehow use them in a promotion. Maybe, The first 20 who " Like" my fb page get a free set of solar eclipse glasses. Or, sign up for my newsletter and get a free pair of solar glasses. I decided that it probably wasn't worth the effort.

We have bought several dozen and gave them away at the events Wayne spoke at earlier this month. The few that we bought and kept for ourselves turned out not to be approved and we had to buy some last minute at ridiculous prices!
