Astronomy club examines Dark Sky program

Posted in:

The Medina Astronomy Club is moving its October meeting from Oct. 31 to keep from conflicting with Halloween to Tuesday, Oct. 29, and will use the session to look at the Dark Sky initiative, which is striving to change how people light their homes and businesses to keep light from beaming into the night sky.

If the weather allows, the meeting could include time to look at the stars that night as well, officials said.

The club meets at the Medina Community Library, at 13948 Highway 16 North in Medina, beginning at 7 p.m. The public is invited to take part in the meeting, which is free.

The Bandera Electric Cooperative also will make a presentation at the meeting about its rebate program for improved pole and street lighting in Medina. That program should help renters and property owners change out current lights for softer, more energy-efficient LED lights at little-to-no cost, officials said.
