International Dark Skies Week

April 21, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
International Dark Skies week starts tomorrow (4/22-4/30)!!! No one should own the night. This goes beyond giving your kids a chance to see the Milky Way--although I think they have the right to enjoy the night. Rampant light pollution is BAD for human health, and DEVASTATES wildlife. Poorly-designed, excessive lighting is proven to be MORE DANGEROUS and not safer for humans. The evidence is found here at the website of the International Dark-Sky Association, whose research is often referenced. They also provide excellent information on how to improve (safer, and cheaper) lighting in your home and community: IDA Dark Skies
 
We are proud supporters.
