Local astronomy educator Andy Kreyche will
review the natural, cultural, and scientific significance of dark, light
... and light pollution. Our perception of the cosmos and knowledge
about it all came about by observing and interpreting light. Yet our
natural love of light has left a void in the appreciation of what
darkness provides. The overuse of artificial light at night was first
characterized as a problem by astronomers, as it interfered with their
view of the heavens. We now know that the ill effects of light pollution
are widespread, causing disruption to living things running the gamut
from plankton to people.
