The Day the Lights Went Out

Light pollution is becoming more and more of a problem and this short film illustrates the issue in a charming manner.

In fact this was created by Madhouse Video who were approached by the US National Park Service and Global Explorers who are working together to promote appreciation of starry night skies and natural darkness.

There are numerous reasons why we should be concerned about the amount of light that we produce. The preservation of dark skies is important for many reasons including astronomy, energy conservation, cost, wildlife and even human health.
