The SAS presents

Author Paul Bogard, The End of Night

A starry night is one of nature's most magical wonders.  Yet in our artificially lit world, most of us no longer experience true darkness.      In this talk based on his book THE END OF NIGHT, Paul Bogard seeks to restore our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art.  Using a blend of personal narrative, natural history, science, and astronomy, Bogard shares the importance of darkness--what we've lost, what we still have, and what we might regain--and the simple ways we can reduce the brightness of our nights tonight.
