MORE from Royce: I spent this past weekend at the International Dark-Sky Association (@idadarksky
) annual general meeting held at Snowbird, Utah. Meeting Harun and Gavin was one of the featured highlights of the meeting, which was also held in association with ALAN (ArtificialLightAtNight.org).
SKYGLOW is an ongoing crowdfunded project spanning 150,000 miles and 3,000,000 pictures taken, which explores North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment. SKYGLOW journeys through the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as "skyglow,” and the Dark Sky Movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies .
