It’s easy to dismiss light pollution as something that just makes it “harder to see the stars”. But the impacts reach further and impact us in more meaningful ways. The issue branches out to touch the environment, human health, health and safety and more.
In this panel discussion we’ll delve deeper into the issue from the perspective of people who have to go to great lengths to overcome the damage caused by light pollution. We’ll hear from a renowned dark sky photographer, astronomers from MTU Blackrock Castle Observatory, and a deep sky astrophotographer.
Our panelists will show all the hidden ways in which light pollution impacts on their work and their passions, as well as considering what the future holds. This Dark Sky Week event will make for a fascinating panel discussion, but we want to hear from you too. Share you experiences or ask questions of our panelists and join the discussion.
This talk will broadcast live, here, on Friday April 9th at 7pm
