International Dark Sky Week in Mayo

Delighted to be a part of Mayo’s celebrations of International Dark Sky week.

Here are the details:

Anna Levin Presents; Incandescent – We need to talk about Light

Our world is getting brighter – but is brighter always better? The living world evolved to an eternal rhythm of dawn-day-dusk-night… In her book ‘Incandescent – We Need to Talk about Light,’ journalist Anna Levin explores the consequences of disrupting this rhythm, on human health and the rest of the natural world.

Followed by

Emma Marrington Presents; Night Blight and the countryside

A starry night sky is one of the most magical sights of the countryside – but we want more people to have a chance to experience this amazing sight wherever they live. We will explore CPRE’s campaigning to tackle light pollution and to help protect and enhance dark skies.

Join us at 7pm on Thurs 8th April by Zoom webinar. Each of our events this week are hosted by a Dark Sky Community – this event will be hosted by Ballycroy .
