Eclipse Series: Montana's Night Skies Description:
Butte Public Library kicks off its Eclipse Series with Sabre Moore: Dark Skies Light Pollution and the Story of Montana's Night Skies on Thursday, September 28, at 5:30 pm at the Butte Public Library.

The night sky has inspired generations of humanity to tell stories — some about heroes and adventures, others about life ways or the movements of seasons and animals. Today we find ourselves in a world in which dark skies are increasingly rare, especially in urban areas, due to the growing prevalence of light pollution. Join DarkSky Advocate Sabre Moore, to learn about the history and culture of the DarkSky movement and the effects of light pollution on human, animal and environmental health. Along the way, audiences will hear about night sky stories, gain an understanding of Montana’s Dark Sky Places, including Medicine Rocks State Park, and how they can measure light pollution by phone, and join global citizen science efforts.
