Man-made light pollution: its effects and how to tackle it
Fri 8 September 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
This is the first in a series of four talks on the Bath Preservation Trust / Herschel Museum of Astronomy theme Conserving the Planet. The other three talks are on Fridays 13 October, 3 November and 1 December – all at BRLSI.
Stray light from unregulated and misdirected fittings has often overlooked consequences for the planet and living things. Bob Mizon MBE FRAS will outline the problem and discuss solutions.
Bob Mizon, astronomer, planetarium operator and modern languages graduate, is coordinator of the British Astronomical Association’s Commission for Dark Skies. The CfDS works with like-minded organisations to try to persuade manufacturers, installers and legislators to get lights right.
