Darkness in Distress

Learn about light pollution, and about a new mindset and new technology that are poised to slow — and perhaps reverse — this bane of modern life.

Kelly Beatty, Science Journalist

Tuesday, July 16, 7:00pm

Light pollution, simply put, is any unnecessary or excessive outdoor illumination. Sadly, it’s become a pervasive and ugly consequence of modern 24/7 society. Light pollution robs us of the night sky’s beauty, negatively affects the ecosystem, and creates an in-your-face waste of energy. But a new mindset and new technology are poised to slow — and perhaps reverse — this bane of modern life.
