We have to jack up the shipping cost on Eclipse Goggles and all solar category products. The reason is that we will be forced to use Priority Mail or UPS 2-day or something like that so that your goggles or other solar products will arrive before the eclipse. We don’t want to price gouge, this is just the reality of shipping prices and we can’t afford to provide our usual Free US shipping on solar products now and still get your solar products to you in time.

Also, if you want a Herschelwedge you need to order NOW, because they are going be loaded onto the truck going to the eclipse for sale there. We are loading the truck on Tuesday for an early Wednesday departure, so again…order now if you want one.

Order here:


Obviously we are going to be at the eclipse. We will be in a dark Oregon location with no cell phone reception. And we are going up early and staying late. So if you order something after August 14th, it probably won’t process until August 24th and it might not ship until August 26th. Of course, we will ship sooner if we can, but we want you to have realistic expectations for your delivery time. Sorry for the inconvenience. But hey, people…ECLIPSE! Solution…ORDER NOW!
