Dark Sky Festival 2014

The International Dark-Sky Association South Florida Chapter is proud to announce:

Palm Beach County’s 2nd Annual Dark Sky Festival

Saturday, March 29th from 6-10pm

at the Okeeheelee Nature Center in West Palm Beach, FL

The purpose is to raise public awareness about light pollution and sky glow in our area. Sky glow is caused by wasteful lighting practices and fixtures that allow light to escape upward. It wastes energy and impacts wildlife including sea turtles, frogs, birds, mammals and insects; and makes it difficult to view and enjoy the wonders of starlight in the night sky.

This family-friendly event will highlight the issues, offer solutions and feature stargazing, presentations and vendors.  Last year close to 1000 attendees came to enjoy the event.  Don’t miss it !!

Additional details coming soon.
