Light Pollution - What You Need to Know

Everyone in amateur astronomy knows that light pollution is a serious problem. Scott Kardel of the International Dark-Sky Association presents a sort of a "state of the union" address on light pollution that will show off the magnitude of the problem; what is being done to slow and even reverse its effects; and how you can help join the cause. The talk will contain simple demonstrations and dramatic images from Earth and space that show how to the far-reaching impacts of the problem.


Scott Kardel

Scott Kardel has a BS in physical science / secondary education from Northern Arizona University and a Master's Degree in astronomy from the University of Arizona. He has worked as assistant director for the Lake Afton Public Observatory in Wichita, Kansas and as the public affairs coordinator for Palomar Observatory. There he directed their public outreach programs and was the observatory's representative on light pollution issues. He has been the public affairs director for the International Dark-Sky Association since August, 2011.


"What's Up?" in this month will be presented by Jim Benet
