The stars at night are big and bright...

For generations, the night sky has served as a map for explorers, a spark for childhood imaginations and a muse for songwriters. However, the lights that come with our area's growth are beginning to block our access to this treasure. With the community's help, we hope to regain and preserve the night sky for future generations.
