Used Solar Eclipse Glasses Collection
August 24, 2017
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until September 15, 2017
Henderson County is collecting used solar eclipse protective eyewear so that they may be given to international students to view a future celestial event. The glasses will go to Astronomers Without Borders, an organization whose mission is to create international outreach programs that educate, inform, and inspire through astronomy and science programs across the globe. Glasses will be collected at libraries, the health department, the county’s King Street office, the Athletic and Activity Center, the Historic Courthouse, and the sheriff’s office.
