Saving Our Stars: Documenting the Montana Night Sky
June 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Photographer and biologist John Ashley has wandered around our state capturing elusive Montana beauty that can only be found in the dark — comets, meteor showers, shooting stars, northern lights, and the Milky Way. More than 80% of Americans live where they can no longer see the Milky Way at night. Join John for a dazzling video and photographic tour of Montana at night, learn how to protect your family from the negative effects of artificial light, and get a glimpse of the future of tourism in the few remaining dark sky places.
