Starry Nights: Preserving Dark Skies In America's National Parks says
We live in an artificially-lit world that allows us to be productive 24/7, but energy development encroaches on our ability to experience the true splendor of dark, starry nights in many remote places.

National parks, such as nearby Rocky Mountain, Chaco Culture National Historic Park, Canyonlands, and Dinosaur National Monument, are havens where we can reconnect with our ancestral night skies.

Come experience an evening of rich, visual imagery, discover the beauty of the dark, and learn what can be done to protect the quality of the night sky in America's national parks.

Planetarium program 6:00-7:00 (please arrive early to ensure seating preferences)

Reception including Q&A with experts to follow in DMNS West Atrium

Produced by Denver Museum of Nature & Science with support from Rocky Mountain Wild
