Two Space Celebrations this Week

It’s time to celebrate the skies and reflect on ways to improve our stargazing experience. There are two events going on right now that you should consider; both running from April 19 to the 25th.

The first is Astronomy Week. Astronomical societies around the world are planning events all this week, so this should be a great time to meet other space enthusiasts and take a look through a telescope. Astronomy Day is on April 24th, with even more events happening that day.

The second is National Dark-Sky Week, which hopes to raise awareness about light pollution. It asks people to turn off unnecessary outdoor lights and consider low-glare alternatives to try and keep the skies as dark as possible.
