International Dark Sky Week

This is International Dark Sky Week! The week of the first new moon in April. It was created  in 2003 by high-school student Jennifer Barlow, International Dark Sky Week has grown to become a worldwide event and a key component of Global Astronomy Month.

I want people to be able to see the wonder of the night sky without the effects of light pollution. The universe is our view into our past and our vision into the future . . . I want to help preserve its wonder." – Jennifer Barlow

I am so lucky to live i a place with relatively little light pollution. There is so much wonder in the night sky. To learn more about International Dark Sky Week, here is the link to their web site!
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.

I am fortunate: I live far enough from neighbors and towns to have a dark sky.
