National Dark Sky Week - 2008

National Dark Sky Week, an initiative pioneered by Virginia resident Jennifer Barlow, will run from April 6-12, 2008. Residents and businesses are encouraged to turn out their unnecessary outdoor lights in order to temporarily reduce light pollution (and save energy). Through the joy of seeing more stars in the night sky, this initiative seeks to increase community awareness of light pollution issues. To find out more, check out National Dark Sky Week
