Many people are under the impression eclipse glasses expire, but unless they did not meet safety specifications or are damaged and scratched, they are safe to use.

There are several options!

You can also donate them. If you'd like to donate your Eclipse glasses, bring them to Townsquare Media in Casper.

That means, if you're careful, they can be good to go by the next time a total solar eclipse drifts over America on April 8, 2024. One possible idea is to frame the solar eclipse glasses alongside an image of the phenomenon.

The lenses may be able to be recycled with camera film, check with a local camera shop. Since the organization strives to bring astronomy-based education to schools, this is pretty much the flawless project for them. American Paper Optics had a goal of producing 100 million pairs of eclipse viewers prior to totality, according to a statement.

What's in a smaller glove? More hype for the fight
Only this time, instead of bigging up McGregor's abilities, he was talking shit about the fighter and his team. He's won by knockout in six of his last eight fights, and none of those bouts have made it to the third round.

So do not throw those glasses away! NASA says those warnings are outdated and as long as they are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard, they are fine.

Astronomers Without Borders will be collecting them so that school children can view future eclipses.

The organization's members will have more details soon.

Many of those living in the United States used special solar eclipse glasses to be able to watch the total solar eclipse on August 21, but now that the phenomenon has come and gone, what can be done with these glasses?

For those interested, Astronomers Without Borders said on Facebook you are not supposed to send your eclipse glasses to their organization. Neither does the plastic frame of sturdier glasses.
