Eclipse Viewing Glasses

It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays – even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times if you want to face the sun. Viewing glasses are available at Herculaneum City Hall or Bloomsdale Bank of Herculaneum for $1.00 a pair.
