Don't throw away your eclipse glasses — save them for 2024
Eclipse totality will take place April 8, 2024 over Buffalo, N.Y.
Hold on to those solar eclipse glasses — the next solar eclipse to be visible in southern Ontario is just seven years away.
NASA says the eclipse will happen April 8, 2024 in the evening, around 7:30 p.m. And if this year's rush on glasses is any indication, they will be a hot commodity then as well.
"It's actually going to be very close [to southern Ontario] — totality is going to be in downtown Buffalo," Seglenieks said.
Seglenieks said it's a good idea to store your glasses somewhere safe. Perhaps store them in a photo album of with other keepsake trinkets.
NASA notes you can keep solar eclipse glasses that are compliant with the ISO 12312-2 safety standard.
"Some glasses/viewers are printed with warnings stating that you shouldn't look through them for more than three minutes at a time and that you should discard them if they are more than three years old. Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015," NASA said on its website.
