The Astronomical League is pleased to be a co-sponsor of IDA's International Dark Sky Week. This is a week-long celebration of the night. This year, IDA is encouraging people around the world to come together online to celebrate the night and engage with authors, creators, scientists, and educators whose works have been vital to the movement to protect the night from light pollution. 

The videos will be streamed to YouTube and Facebook daily from April 19-26. For the complete schedule, click here:
