Where the Stars Are

By Linda Tancs

Light management is critical to preserving the beauty of the night sky.  Just ask the folks at the International Dark-Sky Association, a non-profit organization fighting to preserve the night.  They’ve certified five places in the world as an International Dark Sky Reserve–in other words, that’s where the stars are.  The honorees are Mont Mégantic in Canada, Exmoor National Park in England, Aoraki Mackenzie in New Zealand, NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia and Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.
