Description

What We Can Do About Light Pollution

James Lowenthal, Professor of Astronomy at Smith College and active in the International Dark-Sky Association

Wednesday, November 8, 7pm- 8:30pm

You may have seen images of Earth’s continents at night with metropolitan areas glowing from all our lights! James will lead a discussion of the current impacts that our use of lighting is having both on our own health and on the animals and plants that share the planet with us. Not only are these lights bad for nature but they are bad for us, too. James will describe work he and others are doing to reduce unnecessary light and offer opportunities for you to get involved in helping make progress around this important issue. Weather permitting we’ll also spend some time star-gazing! FREE, Registration appreciated
