Photos from: GOSP takes dark sky message to county

Contributed, Bob Yoesle slide show

SHINING A LIGHT ON DARKNESS: Representatives from and supporters of the Goldendale Observatory showed up last Tuesday at the Klickitat County Commissioners meeting to press for compliance with dark sky policies. A slide from a presentation by Bob Yoesle shows the dramatic difference in night visibility between light spillage on the left and safe, dark-sky friendly lighting on the right. Concerns about safety and costs of dark-sky lighting were raised and addressed, with the group asserting safety could actually be enhanced and costs could be lessened with environmentally sound lighting.
