TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) On Monday morning millions of eyes in America will be fixed on the sky for the total solar eclipse.
If you want to watch the eclipse experts say you need to protect your eyes to prevent permanent damage.
Many locations have reported selling out of the glasses.
The Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium at the University of Arizona has sold more than 4,000 pairs of glasses for the eclipse. The center has been updating it's website to let people know what's available. The glasses are $5 a pair.
Noel Hensley is the education director at Flandrau.
"We've had to order two separate batches from our original order," Hensley said. "It's definitely high demand. There's so much public interest in this event."
The center has been fielding calls for days from people looking for glasses.
"I don't think we could have anticipated this kind of turnout," said Shiloh Fontes. "We're really excited that everyone is so excited to see the solar eclipse, of course safely."
Fontes does design and operations at Flandrau, and she's traveling to Idaho to be in the path of totality.
"What I'm most looking forward to is that when we have totality we will be able to see the stars at the same time," Fontes said.
Fontes says when buying glasses make sure you find the ISO number to confirm they were made by a company with verified filters.
