There are a few state libraries that have the eye wear you need to see this historic moment. Here in Connecticut, residents won't see it, but many people are still looking forward to seeing the partial solar eclipse on Monday afternoon.
The first 500 guests that go to the Connecticut Science Center on Monday will get a free solar eclipse kit with paid general admission.
Blondin Shea Eyecare in Torrington will be giving out 500 glasses for free starting at 1 p.m. on Monday. It's also first come, first serve.
At Hartford's Public Library, they have a few pairs left, but only for Hartford residents.
In New Haven, the library has about 50 pairs, but they're asking people to share. They'll have a party from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday.
Also tied to this historic event? Guests aboard the Royal Caribbean's Total Eclipse Cruise will get Bonnie Tyler, the Welsh songstress of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" fame - she will be on board to perform her 1983 hit just as the moon sails across the sun.
