City Lights Vs. The Night Sky
Ever look up in the sky and wondered why you can’t always see the stars?
In the first part of Monday's Up to Date, we talk with Paul Bogard, author of The End of Night: Searching For Natural Darkness in an Age of Artificial Light, about the effects of light pollution.
Paul Bogard is the editor of the anthology Let There Be Night: Testimony on Behalf of the Dark. A native Minnesotan, Paul grew up watching the stars and moon from a lake in the northern part of the state. He has lived and taught in New Mexico, Nevada, Wisconsin, and North Carolina, and is now assistant professor of English at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va.
