Drive on to give African students solar glasses

|4 August 2016|


Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) is striving to give 100,000 students in Africa a safe view of September’s eclipse with solar glasses.

AWB is to “provide safe solar viewing glasses to students across the continent in support of STEM education efforts through the generous support of donors” and build on its similar campaign for the 2013 African eclipse, “when it sent 13,700 glasses to classrooms throughout Africa”.

And people can back the pioneering project which provides glasses which are “absolutely safe for direct solar viewing of solar eclipses and sunspots.”

The annular eclipse will take place on Thursday 1 September.
