ANSA ECLIPSE GLASSES!

With a partial solar eclipse coming to Arkansas in 2023 and a total eclipse in 2024, we are making top-quality made-in-USA custom printed eclipse glass to our members and the public.  These are available to members at a special price if purchased concurrently with a new or renewed membership and can be had as an optional gift item with some new and all renewed memberships.  More information below.

We offer three levels of membership.  All come with a member decal and literature. Merchandise ships free to members who also get advance notice of ANSA events, like the Observing 101 online courses and the Dark-Sky Festival.  But the real benefit of membership is knowing you are helping to make a Dark-Sky difference here in Arkansas.

Eclipse Glasses

In Oct 2023, Arkansas will experience a partial solar eclipse.  As exciting as this is, it is just a warm-up for the first total eclipse to pass through our state in a hundred years in 2024.  A partial solar eclipse is something to see, a total eclipse is something to experience.  In either case, you will have to have eclipse glasses to fully and safely participate in these events.

The last total eclipse in North America saw people scrambling to find glasses at the last minute.  It also saw a lot of uncertified Chinese glasses on the market.  Even if safe, cheap eclipse glasses can spoil the experience by being too dark.

ANSA and CAAS have joined together to bulk purchase glasses using our own custom artwork made in the USA by the top supplier.  Don't wait till it's too late.  (need more than 10 - email [email protected])

Bandanna

These redlight keychain flashlights produce 12 lumens of light. Plenty for dark-adapted eyes to read a chart or follow a path, and great on your key chain. The battery can be replaced, so useful to have even if you are not under the milky way, and with the ANSA lanyard easy to find.
