Another 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast
I will be on the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast tomorrow, May 16th, with my colleague Connie Walker. Our topic is “Back to the Dark Ages: Responsible Nightime Lighting”.
Connie is our dark skies guru and the chair of the US and International Dark Skies working group for the International Year of Astronomy. She wrote most of it and wanted a second person, so I stepped in. I added a few bad jokes that you will probably be able to pick out fairly quickly.
Dark Skies Awareness is a big cornerstone project of the IYA. Activities are going on throughout the year at locations around the country. On your summer vacation, you might catch a dark skies program at one of our national parks or see a planetarium show on light pollution. Many local astronomy clubs are involved with dark skies programs as well and have lots of great information.
If you haven’t subscribed to this podcast yet, get on board now! There are a lot of peope out there producing interesting work on an incredibly diverse range of topics in astronomy.
