Where to find eclipse glasses in central Georgia

Getting your hands on eclipse glasses locally

*We will continue updating this story as we learn of more locations

If you're looking forward to the eclipse and don’t have glasses, we have some solutions for you.

Most of Central Georgia's NASA-approved retailers like Kroger, Lowe's, and Walmart are sold out. We did find out the Walmart on Gray Highway in Macon will get a new shipment Friday morning that should go on sale that day.

If you can't afford a pair, some libraries will be giving out approved glasses as well.

The Ocmulgee National Monument will have 600 pairs of glasses available for free on Monday on top of the Great Temple Mound beginning at 2:15 p.m.

Starting Thursday, the Johnson County library will give out glasses when they open. The library in Laurens County has already given out their allotment.

Alex Hughes marketing director at the Middle Georgia Regional Library says all Bibb County branches will give out 100 sets of glasses the day of the eclipse.

“The glasses are 'first come, first serve,' while supplies last, it's one pair per person,” Hughes said.

There are also several approved online retailers that still have glasses. If you see a store with approved glasses let us know.

CORRECTION: Wednesday we reported that a customer service representative at the Walmart on Gray Highway told us they would be getting more glasses on Friday, but that's not true. Thursday we talked to Co-manager Cedric Isaac who said that representative misspoke. He told us the Gray Highway Walmart is out of glasses, and won't be getting any more.
