SKYGLOW Presentation at The Loft Cinema | 2:00 pm
Followed by a reception at Borderlands Brewery (119 E Toole Ave.) | 4:30 — 6:00 pm

Renowned timelapse filmmakers Harun Mehmedinovic and Gavin Heffernan spent three years traveling over 150,000 miles and captured more than 3,000,000 pictures of the night sky for their project, SKYGLOW. The project explores North America’s remaining magnificent night skies and the grave threat of light pollution to our fragile environment.

On April 22, their journey brings them to Tucson where, together with the International Dark-Sky Association, they will share their learned history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as «skyglow,” and their role in the dark sky movement that's fighting to reclaim the night skies.

After their video-presentation, a discussion on nighttime conservation will follow with local scientists:

John Barentine
Director of Conservation, International Dark-Sky Association

Chris Impey
Distinguished Professor of Astronomy, University of Arizona

Marie Long
Associate Director of Conservation Education & Science, Arizona Sonora Desert Museum
