KAS Eclipse Shades
$4.00 (includes shipping)

On 21 August 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will cross the United States from coast to coast, giving tens of millions of people in a 70-mile-wide path from Oregon to South Carolina a chance to see the solar corona and experience all phases of the eclipse.

KAS Eclipse Shades make it possible for you to safely view the Sun's surface during the partial phases of the eclipse. While wearing them you'll also be able to observe large sunspots.

The shades are made of the highest quality black plastic polymer material with the integral filter medium distributed throughout the lens, which block 100% of ultraviolet radiation, 100% infrared radiation and 99.999% of intense visible light. These premium solar filters are scratch resistant, safe and create a sharp orange colored image of the Sun.

The Miller Planisphere

The Miller Planisphere is made with heavy duty plastic and includes a durable plastic case. All planispheres sold by the KAS are 10.5” in diameter and set at 40 latitude. Just dial the date and time and you'll see what's in the sky for that moment. Every blossoming amateur astronomer should own one of these!

Sun Moon Earth by Dr. Tyler Nordgren

All copies sold by the KAS have been signed by the author.

On August 21, 2017, more than ten million Americans will experience an awe-inspiring phenomenon: the first total eclipse of the Sun in America in almost forty years. In Sun Moon Earth, astronomer Tyler Nordgren illustrates how this most seemingly unnatural of natural phenomena was transformed from a fearsome omen to a tourist attraction. From the astrologers of ancient China and Babylon to the high priests of the Maya, Sun Moon Earth takes us around the world to show how different cultures interpreted these dramatic events. Greek philosophers discovered eclipses' cause and used them to measure their world and the cosmos beyond. Victorian-era scientists mounted eclipse expeditions during the age of globe-spanning empires. And modern-day physicists continue to use eclipses to confirm Einstein's theory of relativity.

Beautifully illustrated and lyrically written, Sun Moon Earth is the ideal guide for all eclipse watchers and star gazers alike.
