The City Dark

This makes me so excited!  There is a new documentary coming out today January 18 from filmmaker Ian Cheney.  The new film is called “The City Dark”, and it is dedicated to raising awareness of the dwindling of one of Earth’s natural resources:  the night sky.  People who love the night sky should absolutely make every attempt to see this film!  You can go to for a list of showings near you.  I’m going to try to attend the showing at the D.C. Environmental Film Fest on February 24th.  If you live in the Baltimore, MD or NoVa area you should really try to get out for this!  This film is exactly what we need to get the ball rolling on awareness of night sky conservation.  Praise God for people like Ian Cheney who have a passion for this issue and the means and the talent to do something about it!
