Officials Warn Against Solar Eclipse Sunglasses Scam

NASA officials and the American Astronomical Society verified five manufacturers making solar eclipse glasses that meet all glasses standards - American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium - AstroSolar Silver and Gold film only, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17. They can even fraudulently print the fake ISO certification on the product (or on their website), even though what they're selling could be something as flimsy as novelty 3-D glasses.
