There will be a presentation at the Highland Road Park Observatory on Friday 26 February at 7:30pm about the 20/20 Vision Campaign. This presentation is aimed at amateur astronomers, homeowners, business owners, sports enthusiasts, hikers, bikers and hunters. Light pollution yields no benefits whatsoever, and the talk will outline solutions, citizen science exercises and other tools to increase the chance of a person's hometown light pollution not increasing and in fact decreasing in some situations.
