Is street lighting blotting out the stars in your night sky? Are you concerned about the creep of light pollution? We’ll explore the different types of lights and ways to use lighting effectively while still preserving dark skies. Weather permitting, the class will reconvene at 9:00 p.m. at the Ely golf course parking lot for constellation-finding and telescope viewing after the session at the Folk School.
