Pass along your eclipse glasses

Did you watch the solar eclipse with your kids? Were you in the path of totality? We made do here with 92%, and the kids thought it was pretty neato seeing the sun looking like the moon.

If you're wondering what to do with your solar eclipse glasses now that the next U.S. eclipse isn't for seven years, Astronomers Without Borders is collecting them to use in classrooms in South America and Asia for the eclipse there in 2019. The glasses generally expire after three years (you can check yours to see), so they may not be safe for you to save till your next eclipse. So give them a new life by passing them along to another eager kid!

You can find details at the Astronomers Without Borders donation page, and find a local collection point on their map.
