Join the NASA Night Sky Network tonight, Thursday, January 28, at 6:00pm Pacific Time (9:00pm Eastern) when Kelly Beatty will lead a discussion about the impact of light pollution on both society and our ability to view the night sky. 

Light pollution is pervasive, and few of us can enjoy a star-spangled night sky any longer, thanks to the glowing pall caused by all the lights that line roadways, parking lots, and backyards. Fortunately, the spread of light pollution can be halted and even reversed. Join Sky & Telescope’s Kelly Beatty as he discusses how we can safely light up our homes, businesses, and communities without wasting energy, disturbing the neighbors, or creating an unhealthy environment for humans and wildlife.
