We know you want to watch the eclipse today, but like us, you probably forgot to buy glasses in advance. And unfortunately, there aren't many places around Northeast Ohio where the special glasses needed to look at the eclipse are available.

Thankfully, there are some eclipse viewing parties you can check out in the Cleveland area.

Every Winking Lizard with a patio plans to hand out 25 free pairs of special solar eclipse glasses. Just be one of the first 25 people to get out onto the patio after 2 p.m. at your nearest Winking Lizard and you'll get a pair.

But there are some other parties, too, most of which are starting around 1 p.m.:

-The Cleveland Museum of Natural History
-Edgewater Park
-Great Lakes Science Center
-Westcreek Reservation in the Cleveland Metroparks
-The Cleveland Public Library
-The Case Western Reserve University Astronomy Department

Don't wait. Glasses are limited at all of these locations so if you want to view the eclipse, get going.

Can't get down to one of these events? You can make a pinhole viewer at home. Here's how, from NASA:
