About the event

Did you know Durango, Colorado is in the process of becoming a Dark Sky Community? To help bring awareness to this endeavor and spread the message, the Durango Photography Club is hosting a Dark Sky Event.

Light pollution is increasing at 2x the rate of population growth and 83% of the global population lives under a light-polluted sky.

Light pollution can disrupt wildlife, impact human health, waste money and energy, and block our view of the universe. It's shocking to know there are people who have only seen the Milkyway a couple times in their life...if at all.

According to the International Dark-Sky Association, “much outdoor lighting used at night is inefficient, overly bright, poorly targeted, improperly shielded, and, in many cases, completely unnecessary. This light, and the electricity used to create it, is being wasted by spilling it into the sky, rather than focusing it on to the actual objects and areas that people want illuminated.”

Join the Durango Photography club for a night of astrophotography. Space is limited to 10 participants.
