Don't throw away those eclipse glasses

Don't throw away those eclipse glasses”

Of course, the Great American Eclipse of 2017 was a huge deal, and some might feel some sentimental value toward their glasses.

Kaleb Peterson, 4, of Sterling, holds eclipse glasses up to his eyes Monday during the solar eclipse at Sauk Valley Community College's eclipse-viewing event. NASA says those warnings are outdated and as long as they are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard, they are fine.

You can also recycle them if the frames are paper or cardboard, Rumpke spokeswoman Molly Yeager Broadwater said - just pull out the lenses first (those parts aren't recyclable).

A group called Astronomers Without Borders is planning a collection drive for used eclipse glasses which it will distribute to schools in areas where the 2019 eclipse will be visible, giving students the opportunity to fall in love with astronomy.

If you somehow missed the fact that a ideal solar eclipse drew a path across much of the United States yesterday, well, you really should invest in a radio. Luckily, another total solar eclipse is coming to America in 2024, and glasses made with the most recent specifications will still be good then, according to NASA.

"A lot of people probably just chucked them after the eclipse", James said. Or you can keep them as a scrapbook addition or memento.

For months and months, countless eclipse-viewing hopefuls have been buying up special protective shades so that they could gaze skyward on August 21st and enjoy the lovely celestial event in all its glory.

The organization's members will have more details soon. In fact, there's a decent chance you might move (at least) once during that time span.
