Dark Sky Conversations

15-04-2023 • 37 mins

In this episode as part of International Dark Sky Week, I get to chat with Professor Chris Lidman, the director of Siding Spring Observatory, where we discuss the importance of dark sky conservations. The Siding Spring Observatory was the first place in Australia to introduce Dark Sky guidelines, and there is currently an update being done to them. The conversation covers the National Optical Telescope for Australia, which is located in Coonabarabran and surrounded by The Crooked Mountains or locally as the Warrumbungles. The site is a popular holiday destination, particularly for families. The Dark Sky guidelines can be found on the New South Wales Department of Planning website and can be used to create Dark Sky conservation principles.
