Astronomers Without Borders is looking to collect the glasses that were passed out and sold for Monday's eclipse and redistribute them in South American and Asian schools in 2019 when another solar eclipse will happen in about two years.

The next eclipses will be in South America in 2019 and 2020. Wrong! Those once sought-after glasses still have plenty of life left in them, and aspiring amateur astronomers would love to get their hands on them.

First, see if they are reusable.

Astronomers Without Borders, a nonprofit aimed at providing astronomy-related education for developing countries, recently shared a upcoming program that will repurpose the glasses. "Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015". Just make sure that the filters or lenses aren't scratched, punctured or torn. If you'd like to donate your Eclipse glasses, bring them to Townsquare Media in Casper.
