The skies of Maine, outside the bright lights of its relatively major metropolises, are the most beautiful in the northeast because there’s so little human-made light, and we can see the stars and planets in their full glory. Defending the Dark is Tara Roberts Zabrriske’s lovely film that is both a celebration and a history of and homage to Maine’s beautiful dark skies and the people who work hard to keep it that way.
Dark Sky Maine ( https://darkskymaine.com/) is sponsoring this program which will include a tour of Maine’s night sky in the planetarium. Nancy Hathaway, President of Dark Sky Maine and Tara Roberts Zabrriske will answer questions following the program.
