Dark skies and light pollution

So after doing a little research, like we librarians like to do, I was able to find the book I mentioned yesterday. The book is entitled The End of Night by Paul Bogard and I highly recommend it. I’ve also included it on the green reading page.

FYI, I also found out he has a new book entitled The Ground Beneath Us. I’ll let you know how that is as I just requested it this morning.

Sincerely-

Dark skies

So excuse me if you heard this one. I thought I posted this article before but maybe I haven’t. One of my favorite things about the earth is actually the night sky. I love it when we’re up north on vacation and you can look at the sky.

I’ve often said to my kids that the sky looks so full of stars, like you couldn’t stick another one up there because there’s no room. Anyway, the article is entitled “The World’s 11 Certified Dark Sky Reserves, Where the Stars Run Riot ” by Melissa Bryer over at Treehugger.

When I read this article it actually reminded me of a book I read at the library a few years back but I can’t for the life of me remember the title. Perhaps that’s a re-post for another night. First I need to go back and find the book.

Sincerely-
