Skyglow Project Video
We will kick-off our first annual Celebrate the Stars Week with the amazing presentation fof the Skyglow Project, from two aware-winning filmmakers.
After a grueling three-year journey of over 150,000 miles traveled and 3,000,000 pictures taken, renowned timelapse filmmakers Harun Mehmedinovic and Gavin Heffernan are proud to introduce SKYGLOW; a hardcover photo book and timelapse video series exploring North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. SKYGLOW explores the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as "skyglow,” and the Dark Sky Movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies. Featured by rock legends The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, BBC Earth, National Geographic, Time, National Park Service, and over 1000 media outlets, SKYGLOW images and videos have been seen by over 200 million people.
