While northern California struggles with rolling blackouts Light Pollution continues unabated.

This web site is about freedom from all forms of Light Pollution.
Freedom from Sky Glow.  Freedom from Glare.  Freedom from Light Trespass.

The Night Sky Belongs To Us All.  It Is Part Of The Commons.
Don't loose sight of the night, defend our views of the Milky Way.
