2018 Light Pollution Committee Meetings

Post by Christopher K. » December 27th, 2017, 1:09 pm

The first Light Pollution Committee meeting of 2018 is Wednesday the 3rd at 5:45pm at the Highland Road Park Observatory. (All of them will be at HRPO unless otherwise stated.)

BRAS' President for 2018 is Steven Tilley, and the Vice-President is Scott Louque. Neither has held office in BRAS before and we know the club will benefit from the infusion of interesting ideas. We have faith that Steven and Scott have the same enthusiasm for lessening the light pollution in the area as the rest of us.

The next meeting of the Light Pollution Commitee meeting will be Wednesday 5 September from 6:15pm to 7pm at HRPO. I had the opportunity this week to communication with WBRZ. I mentioned that light pollution is the number one hindrance to skygazing for those who live within twenty-five kilometers of HRPO.
