Don't throw away those eclipse glasses

Here's Where to Find Your Last-Minute Solar Eclipse Glasses

There are several options!

Before you toss those cardboard specs into a trash can, here's how you can make better use of them.

Both Asia and South America will be lucky enough to see an eclipse in 2019, which is - y'know - much closer than 2024.

Wondering what to do with those special glasses that were good for an hour or so of viewing the eclipse on Monday? "With branches in Cheyenne and Casper, we were fortunate to be able experience the solar eclipse firsthand". If the glasses are free from damage or any scratches on the film lenses, they are safe for use.

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.

However, many glasses do expire if they're not ISO compliant, so be sure to check yours for an expiration date. Despite the lengthy time since the previous solar eclipse, the next North American event will take place with far less of a wait. The companies are listed here or they'll have an ISO number of 2312-2. Because they're so cheap (if you buy in advance), it probably wouldn't hurt to get a new pair.

Astronomers Without Borders said they will announce more details after the eclipse.

For those interested, Astronomers Without Borders said on Facebook you are not supposed to send your eclipse glasses to their organization.

If you're in the USA and west of Missouri, you're not anywhere near it, so traveling or paying it forward and mailing away the glasses are your reuse options. Plastic-framed glasses can't be recycled, according to Earth911.com.
