​Sorry We Are Out Of Eclipse Glasses

Are you ready for the Great Eclipse of 2017? On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to a rare celestial event -- a total eclipse of the sun! This is the first U.S. total solar eclipse in a quarter century and we are lucky enough to be living in a prime viewing spot. The Puget Sound area is estimated to witness a 96% coverage of the sun during the eclipse. O Bee is ready! We've got one-of-a-kind eclipse glasses we're handing out for free at all branches while supplies last. Don't miss this. Get your free eclipse glasses from O Bee for friends and family too. LEARN MORE about the Eclipse from NASA!

Eclipse Safety

Our glasses are manufactured by Rainbow Symphony, and certified to meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard for such products. NASA cites Rainbow Symphony as one of only four manufacturers to date to have such certification. To learn more CLICK HERE

Eclipse Location:
The Total Solar Eclipse will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Thurston County is not in the "path of totatlity" (100% coverage),  but viewing will be pretty spectacular nonetheless with a predicted 96% of the sun blocked by the moon at approximately 10:15 am. Get your eclipse glasses at O Bee while supplies last.
