UNMC and Nebraska Medicine will be collecting used eclipse glasses to donate to Astronomers Without Borders.
The group is soliciting the glasses for distribution to other countries for future eclipses, including schools in South America and Asia for use when eclipses cross those continents in 2019.
Collection boxes have been set up on the Omaha campus on the second floor of the Sorrell Center, in the vending area outside the C-store, and on the second floor of the Durham Outpatient Center on the Little Free Library, which is located next to the Cornerstone Gift Shop.
Other UNMC campuses are invited to collect glasses and send them in bulk to:
