Photo by New York Times Co./Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Broken Luxor aviator goggles said to have been worn by Amelia Earhart are being auctioned and may fetch over $32,000, according to The Guardian.  It is said Earhart may have worn the goggles as her plane crashed during a lesson in 1921, The Guardian reports.  

Also to be auctioned are 18 unseen photographs of Earhart as she prepared for her 1937 round-the-world attempt, during which she disappeared.  The photos, which include shots of Earhart packing for her final flight and getting a haircut, surfaced after Diane Brown, 66, received them from her mother, a former pilot, but forgot they existed, The Guardian reports.

Clars auction gallery in California will auction the goggles and the photos on Sept. 11.
