INTERNATIONAL DARK SKY WEEK:

LIGHT POLLUTION, HOW IT AFFECTS YOU AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

Online Event, Streaming on CCFPD Facebook and YouTube pages, 7 p.m.

It’s International Dark Sky Week, but what does that mean? Is it more than shutting your lights off?   Retired Director of William M. Staerkel Planetarium at Parkland College, Dave Leake, will give an overview of why International Dark Sky Week exists, activities you can do to celebrate it, and what YOU can do to contribute to an international cause. He’ll give you a checklist of things you can do to improve the lighting efficiency of your own home and ways for all ages to enjoy the sky. Then, venture out to Illinois’ FIRST International Dark Sky Park, Middle Fork River Forest Preserve, to appreciate the night sky in one of Champaign County’s darkest locations! FREE.
