"In Search of the Darkest Skies: Wisconsin and Beyond"

Progress and development always come at a cost, and one of the under appreciated costs of progress is the loss of dark night skies. Lovers of nature, amateur astronomy and wild places can still find and enjoy pristine dark skies, but the search (and the drive) may take longer. This presentation will focus on issues related to locating the remaining dark sky enclaves that can be found within the continental United States (including right here around S. Wisconsin), and some of the logistical and planning issues involved in getting to them.

Space Place is the education and public outreach center of the UW-Madison Astronomy Department. If you are interested in attending one of our programs, please follow the link to the right for more information.
