Due to an overwhelming response with a full-house screening of SAVING THE DARK in January at the Sisters Movie House, we want to extend an offer for those of you who were turned away at the door or were unable to attend. This film is about light pollution and raising awareness for preserving our dark skies. We welcome you to join us for the next screening. Admission is FREE.

Film-maker Sriram Murali has made a stunningly beautiful and informative documentary film called SAVING THE DARK (http://savingthedark.com/). It explores the need to preserve night skies and suggests ways to minimize light pollution.  Contact Rima Givot for more information @ rima.givot@ssd6.org

Did you know that 80% of Americans live under light polluted skies? This pollution is growing at an annual rate of more than 6% in our larger cities, and is estimated that about 40% of the light we use in the U.S. is wasted. What is lost when humans and fellow creatures lose sight of the stars and bypass a natural cycle of darkness? Why do dark skies matter? Excessive and improper lighting threatens our night sky heritage, disrupts our sleep patterns, endangers nocturnal habitats, and more.
