Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

Why are we posting this pic of Saturn on #EarthDay? See that bright dot? That’s our home planet as seen by the Cassini spacecraft! Take a closer look

5 Ways to Celebrate Dark Sky Week!

1. During International Dark Sky Week, get together with friends and family and go outside at night. A lot of us don’t take the opportunity to experience the nighttime environment. Go outside, look up and look around. Lots of interesting stuff is happening during the night hours. Go explore! Better yet, visit one of our International Dark Sky Places!

Postcard-back-web2. Help spread the word about light pollution and the importance of dark skies. This week is a great excuse to talk with friends, family, neighbors, your homeowner’s association or government representatives about why protecting our night environment is so crucial. We have Dark Sky Week resources to help start the conversation.

3. Become a citizen scientist and collect data about the night sky in your neighborhood for Globe at Night. It’s fun, easy and you’ll be helping scientists across the globe better understand the threat of light pollution to our planet. The April campaign has already started, so check it our now.

4. Get this one-of-a-kind Dark Sky Week 2017 t-shirt. You’ll be helping to support the International Dark-Sky Association in its work protecting night skies and promoting the cause, all at the same time. It’s a great conversation starter. Available in women’s, tank and hoodie styles, too.

5. Stopping light pollution isn’t just about seeing the stars. There are other important things at stake, too. Use this week to take the time to learn more about the effect of artificial light at night on human health, the environment, energy waste, crime and safety and our heritage of night skies.
