And now a message from volunteer Merrill Lewis, the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire’s official “2024 Total Solar Eclipse Viewing Glasses Spokesmodel,” seen below rocking his own personal pair of ISO-certified safe-to-view-the-eclipse glasses.

Merrill says: “We’re sorry, but the Aviation Museum sold out of our supply of eclipse glasses on Saturday, April. 6. Join us with our friends from the SEE Science Center at a special eclipse celebration in Arms Park in downtown Manchester on Monday, April 8 from 2 to 4 p.m.

“It’s free and open to all, and the SEE Science Center is arranging for several ways to safely view the eclipse, including a tent with a special covering and telescopes with special viewing filters. See you on Eclipse Day!”

    • Hi Tammi,

      Thanks for the note and sorry to hear what happened. We’ve set aside 100 pairs of glasses for someone to pick up at the museum this weekend. We’re open Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, April 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. If that won’t work, we can have them at the museum first thing Monday morning in time for the eclipse that afternoon. Please reply to jrapsis@nhahs.org or call me at (603) 236-9237 so we can make arrangements. Happy to help and hope this works out.
