Terre Haute - After making over 25 calls around the Wabash Valley, I tracked down two retailers that still have NASA approved solar eclipse glasses for sale.
"Yesterday we sold out, we put them out around 9 and by 11 we were sold out," said Kristine O'Hare, Baesler's Marketing.
Baesler's in Terre Haute still had stock Thursday and is expecting an order of 2,000 pair to arrive Friday that will be split among their three locations.
"It wasn't the most that we could order but it is a pretty hefty order. We have our other two stores there so we will be sending some there as long as those orders do come in," said O'Hare.
You can buy them for for $5 but you have to go to the store, they do not do holds.
"We have sold probably 700 so far, and we are about to be done with today's shipment," said O'Hare.
You can also buy the protective glasses at your eye doctor's office, but it will cost you.
Indiana Eye Specialists still have quite a supply and they are selling them for 12 dollars a pop.
They also require you to come into their store to purchase as well.
But if you can't get your hand on the devices at either of these locations, you are in luck.
ISU and Rose-Hulman are both holding solar eclipse parties where you can get glasses the day of the event.
At ISU they'll give out glasses for free to the first 5,000 eclipse watchers, Rose-Hulman will charge $2 a pair.
But both universities will have other means of allowing you to safely watch the eclipse if you miss out on the glasses.
"We are also going to have some telescopes that are certified to look at the solar eclipse through them. They are really expensive and really cool," said Tracy Osborne, Indiana State University.
But it is crucial that if you don't snag a pair of glasses or attend one of the parties, that you absolutely do not watch the eclipse without approved eye wear.
"It is really important safety wise not to just look at the eclipse. It can damage your eyes, just like on any certain day when you are looking at the sun it can damage your eyes, but even more so during this epic event," said Osborne.
