best joke on FB today ... someone asked for everyone to please not post any more eclipse pictures, because their glasses hadn't arrived yet and didn't want the spoilers

"Give your eclipse glasses a second chance! Astronomers Without Borders and its partners will be announcing a program to collect glasses after the eclipse, to be sent to schools in South America and Asia when eclipses cross those continents in 2019. Information on how you can participate in this program to spread STEM resources around the world will be coming soon so gather them up. Don't waste. Donate!"

actually, the paper plates in that picture are a good idea with little kids. They won't be tempted to look over the lenses. I wore a ball cap when I was using my glasses yesterday, just in case I had the urge to try to look over the top of the glasses.

I plan to use mine in 7 years when another one comes across the midwest. Carbondale, IL is in the center both times. I hope to be able to go to Bloomington, IN just up the road in 2024 (GLWatCDR)

Lesson learned in 2017 is that even 97% coverage does not darkened the area very much. We felt a little cooler and the colors around us seemed to be more yellow than normal, but it was full daylight even at 97%! Going for 100% next time.

seems to me if you have a pair of those $4 premium glasses that have only been used for two minutes and thirty two seconds, they are field tested and certified and an inflation-busting deal looking forward to the 2020 eclipse and a bargain today only for at least $8.

I would never allow my kids to use random second-hand eclipse glasses. Seriously, go do something else.
