The Globe at Night project is an international campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. Light pollution not only affects our view of the stars, but it also wastes energy and money, causes sleep disorders in people, and disrupts the sleeping and breeding habits of animals.

Meet Dr. Connie Walker, Globe at Night Project Lead, on Tuesday, August 4 during a live virtual event. The Children’s/Youth Services Librarian at Riverside Regional Library, Alynda Smithey, will be joining to ask about how Dr. Walker became an astronomer, her education, and her career path, as well as her research for the Globe at Night project. Riverside Library is active in the Library Telescope program and recently a launched a citizen science program that includes Globe at Night.
