Wait, Don't Throw Away Your Eclipse Glasses Yet - Do This Instead!

What to do with eclipse glasses now that it's over

And many are wondering now what to do with their eclipse glasses.

The long-awaited solar eclipse is over but you still have the glasses.

"I thought well if people could collect them in their office, at school, in their family, and bring them here and drop them off to us, then i would package them and ship them." said Williams. Eastern time in SC, a total solar eclipse will make its way across the United States, the moon blocking out the sun for a short period of time and grabbing the attention of those below on Earth, according to The New York Times.

In addition, you can also enter into a drawing to win an Amazon Echo when you stop by to recycle the glasses.

Both factions of AIADMK merge again
Vidyasagar Rao accepts OPS' resignation, but asks him to continue until a new chief minister is appointed. After news broke out about Sasikala's conviction, the situation in the AIADMK ruling camp turned tense.

Other groups say check with schools or rec programs to see if they can use the glasses for astronomy activities, Time reported.

Brooks Mitchell, the education coordinator for the nonprofit Space Science Institute, told Earth911 he will hang the glasses on a bulletin board "to remind myself of the awesome celestial experience".

"Don't waste. Donate!" the program urges on its Facebook page while promising more information on where to send them soon. They just can't be scratched, punctured or torn.

While many eclipse glasses have expiration dates, NASA says any pair that complies with the ISO 12312-2 standards adopted in 2015 will stay good as long as they stay in good condition. It's a wonderful educational opportunity for a number of communities who might not have access to the glasses they need to safely view the eclipse, and Americans now have truckloads of eclipse glasses they don't need anymore. Williams simply asks that you place them in a plastic bag to protect the lens.
