The IDA

Someone recently posted a really interesting article about light pollution and its effects on wildlife. Well, here is the website to a group called the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). It is a group that is committed to reducing the amount of light pollution in the world to the bare minimum. They provide the best and simplest summary I could find: "We promote one simple idea: light what you need, when you need it." This group has a really strong message, and a simple goal that I think everyone can get behind: let the stars shine at night again. Here's the link to their website: http://www.darksky.org/about-ida
Let's get rid of light pollution, so we don't have to travel to a dark zone to see the night sky the way it should be seen.
