#1 gradual installation of some by lasky1994 11.06.2018 04:11

During the months following the creation of the dark-sky reserve, local governments, cottaging associations and conservation agencies flocked to support it, aware that it would draw healthy attention and a stream of respectful visitors to Muskoka. The reserve would also be a kind of model for a refreshing ecological future.

Because Gravenhurst was the closest significant town, its commitment was crucial both to the spirit of the reserve and to the particulars of keeping artificial light earthbound and at levels that would not interfere with star watching.

The intensity of the lights was modest. Mike Silver was an adviser on the choice of those lights. He says, “Compared to today, it just seems so ironic that the town was quite happy back then to let me influence these important choices. And we were all very proud of the results.”

When there’s a violation, the town Nike Air Huarache Femmeoften just looks the other way. So we’re still getting all sorts of light pollution.”
