Dark Night Skies
January 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dark night skies are essential for the health of humans, wildlife and even plants. Join Geneviève de Messières, who has a PhD in astronomy from the University of Virginia, at the Waterford Old School Auditorium where we will explore the five principles of good outdoor lighting design and talk about how we can educate our neighbors and municipalities about the environmental and human health ramifications of stray light. Restoring the night sky is win-win, increasing the beauty of the area, saving energy, and reducing emissions which contribute to climate change. We’ll finish the evening with stargazing, outdoors if weather permits, otherwise indoors using planetarium software on the projection screen. Registration required
The auditorium is a large room, and we are limiting the number of participants to 30 so that there is plenty room to spread out. Please review the Participant Guidelines before attending this event. In addition, our speaker has requested that all participants wear masks during both the indoor and outdoor portions of the program.
