OK, so maybe you know of some solar eclipse eyewear lying around collecting dust and won’t be used again in the United States until 2024.
But they could be used again elsewhere, as soon as 2019.
To that end, students at Kairos Public School Vacaville Academy are seeking donations of used eclipse glasses, to donate to Astronomers Without Borders, an organization which will distribute them, as needed, to school students in the path of the next total solar eclipse, in two years, in Asia and South America.
“This will provide an opportunity for scholars in developing countries to safely view a future eclipse,” Jared Austin, the independent charter school’s co-founder and executive director, noted in an email to The Reporter.
