“Darkness in Distress” with Tim Brothers
September 27, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
We denizens of Earth stand at a crossroads. For decades we’ve allowed the sprawl of civilization to steal ever more stars from our nighttime skies. But this loss does not have to be permanent. Light pollution can be reversed, easily, by common-sense approaches that not only restore the night sky’s beauty but also provide safe, energy-smart lighting solutions for our 24/7 society.
Tim Brothers is the observatory manager of MIT’s Wallace Astrophysical Observatory and a technical instructor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences. In addition to education and outreach, he is the Vice President of the newly formed Massachusetts Chapter of the International Dark-Sky Association.
