I really like what the AL has done on our website. For each program (formerly club)  they have these easy to understand charts for requirements, etc. . I like charts. This is the Messier.



Here's a link to the Messier program. Very nice:


The Messier is like a rite of passage for newbees- and oldbees. Give it a try- you've probably seen many of them already. There is also a binocular Messier program:




Here's a new one I am thinking of doing. I love those moons!

Great story!  Makes me think about enjoying the eclipse from somewhere safe, like North Korea or Guam. 

 

Just kidding, still plan on TN.

 

Keep looking up!

Here is a scary email (and an untimely one). - just read below.

I ordered plastic eclipse glasses and paper eclipse glasses from Amazon back in June knowing that they would be harder to get the closer we got to Aug 21st.

So today I get 2 emails from Amazon saying that they can't confirm that either the plastic ones or the paper ones are safe to use and are refunding my money.

Here is the first rub....
The plastic ones don't have any CE or ISO stamps or certification listed on the actual glasses, just in the description of the items on Amazon.  I was dubious, but they had it listed all over the item description that they were certified.

The paper ones have both CE and ISO certification listed right on the glasses themselves.  Seriously - they are listing them as certified but Amazon is saying they can't confirm it.

Now, here I am 9 days before the eclipse and no glasses that I can trust. 
At this point, I really don't care about the money.  I just hacks me off that I planned ahead and now am getting this thrown at me last minute.

This really sucks.

Re: Important Product Safety Notification Regarding Your Amazon.com Order #111-4255027-3969033

Ted Forte
 

What “MIGHT” be helpful is this from the AAS:

 

“How can you tell if your solar viewer is not safe? You shouldn't be able to see anything through a safe solar filter except the Sun itself or something comparably bright, such as the Sun reflected in a mirror, a sun glint off shiny metal, the hot filament of an unfrosted incandescent light bulb, a bright halogen light bulb, a bright-white LED flashlight (including the one on your smartphone), or an arc-welder's torch. All such sources should appear quite dim through a solar viewer. If you can see lights of more ordinary brightness through your eclipse glasses or handheld viewer, and you're not sure the product came from a reputable vendor, it’s no good. Safe solar filters produce a view of the Sun that is comfortably bright (like the full Moon), in focus, and surrounded by dark sky. If you glance at the Sun through your solar filter and find it uncomfortably bright, out of focus, and/or surrounded by a bright haze, it’s no good. “

 

I wouldn’t recommend handing these things out (due to the potential liability), but if you are an experienced amateur astronomer (and I know you are) you should be able to use the glasses with confidence if they meet the above checks.
