Light Pollution: Much More Than Just Seeing The Stars

Location: L.E. Shore Library.

Have you ever seen the Milky Way? Do you wish that we did not waste so much energy to light up the night sky? It seems the number and brightness of lights we use to light our way at night just grows each year, and now the adverse effects of light pollution  reach all corners of our planet. Would you like to learn about light pollution and how we can appropriately and safely light the night sky while protecting our natural environment?

Join local astronomer Ian Wheelband, Thursday, November 24th at 6pm, for discussion on nighttime lighting and how it impacts not only our night skies but our environment too.

Learn about the various adverse effects of excessive lighting, about what is safe and what is not. We will discuss what you can do to reduce the impact of nighttime lights, at home and in your community.

Light Pollution reaches so much further than just the extinguishment of our stars at night.

In-Person. Registration is required. All ages welcome.
