Rescheduled: Dark Night Skies
December 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This presentation has been rescheduled for January 29.
Location TBD. 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 this Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy presentation 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
