    If you bought any, it may be a good idea to ensure they're the real thing.

    That's dangerous. The safest thing to do is purchase astronomer's binocular's and buy a sun filter or buy welder's goggle's with an interchangable #14 filter according to NASA. Cheap glasses are approved but they will not provide entire coverage for the eyes and sunlight can potentially leak through. the 1.00 price is tempting however youwould still have to use your hands at eye level to block out the suns remaining rays. with goggles and binocular's the entire eyes are completely covered. Alternatively if you have a Telescope a special lense can be purchased with a UV filter to cap on the very end. I think we are going for a pair or two of goggles with filters and Binocular's with a special UV filter since we are doing earth science.
