MAH | Skywatching: How Dark is Your Sky?

April 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

How Dark is Your Sky? Leo Knows.

More than 99% of us in the United States live under light-polluted skies. We’ll explore how our use of outdoor lighting affects what you can, and can’t, see in your nighttime sky, and we’ll take a look at the breathtaking sights a truly dark sky has to offer. Find out how you can contribute to a worldwide project to measure sky brightness by observing the constellation Leo the Lion from your own neighborhood.
