Defending the Night
From time to time here I'll be talking about light pollution. It is a problem not just for Palomar Observatory. Light pollution contributes to global warming, bird kills and may even lead to increased risk of breast cancer and other health problems.
I am giving a talk on light pollution next Tuesday (Jan. 15) in Borrego Springs, CA. There is an interest in making Borrego Springs the next International Dark-Sky Community.
