Night Sky Seminar Thursday Sept. 21, 8:30 - 4:30
At our Night Sky Seminar you'll hear from Paul Bogard to Li-Wei Hung, Laura Erickson to Shadab Rahman. We are gathering award-winning authors, habitat experts and medical researchers working from our National Park System to the International Space Station on how lighting affects us and what technology can deliver in reducing light pollution.
This is an all-day seminar for professionals and citizens. We are currently making arrangements for qualifying CEUs for professionals.
Sunday September 17 SKYGLOW Project 6:30 - 8:30
Globally acclaimed SKYGLOW Project is presenting their fabulous work. Their three year journey to understand light pollution has taken them over 150,000 miles and generated 500,000 photographs.
Harun Mehmedinovic will be presenting SKYGLOW's time-lapse movies from the darkest places in North America. Books and DVDs will also be available. You won't want to miss this big-screen spectacle! Check out all events!
4. Neighborhood Star Parties - and Much More!
Be introduced (or reintroduced!) to the cosmos by local astronomers. There'll be telescopes and food and music. Don't miss these nights of fun and socializing! All ages welcome.
