Conservation on an Astronomical Scale

Date and Time

Thursday, December 9, 2021, 7:00PM - 8:30PM


Web Based,
NH United States


Registration is required for this activity.


Join Doug Arion, Executive Director of the Mountains of Stars public science education and outreach program, for a discussion of light pollution: its surprisingly widespread effects, its impacts on people and the environment, how it compromises our ability to observe space from the surface of the earth, and how we can fix the problem and save money at the same time. This presentation will also describe light pollution reduction efforts in the AMC, including creating an International Dark Sky Park surrounding the AMC lands in the Maine Woods -- which preserved 75000 acres of the last dark sky area in the eastern 2/3 of the US, as well as lighting improvements being made at AMC facilities.
