Lighting technology is changing at a rapid pace, and we continue to choose ever-brighter night lighting. We are inviting presenters to educate professionals and citizens on latest technologies, medical research, and cultural importance, empowering all of us in becoming decision-makers about our Night Skies.

From Paul Bogard to Laura Erickson, Jeremy White to Shadab Rahman, we are gathering award-winning authors, filmmakers, 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.

We are currently making arrangements for qualifying CEUs for professionals.The Seminar will be located at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth, MN. Register here!

Internationally renowned timelapse filmmakers Harun Mehmedinovic and Gavin Heffernan of the SKYGLOW Project will be presenting their work. Come be amazed by incredible time-lapse movies of the clearest, darkest skies in the North America.

The result of athree-year journey of over 150,000 miles traveled and 3,000,000 pictures taken, Harun and Gavin will present their video series and tell stories of 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 discusses the Dark Sky Movement that's reclaiming our visual access to the night skies

After the presentation the filmmakers will be on hand to autograph their new hardcover photo book and DVD. All proceeds go back into the Skyglow Project fund, to further document our beautiful night skies.
