Professor Tim Hunter - Co-Founder of the International Dark Sky Association

Dark Sky Conversations

10-06-2020 • 39 mins

My guest today, professor Tim Hunter, owner of the Grasslands Observatory in Tucson Arizona and co-founder of the International Dark Sky Association

The Grasslands Observatory was started in 1985 when Tim Hunter purchased 20 acres of land at a remote location in Southeastern Arizona approximately an hour's drive from Tucson. The site has no horizon obstructions in any direction and sits on a large grassy plateau surrounded by distant mountains. It is at 5000 feet elevation, and there is only minor light pollution from distant Tucson, Sierra Vista, and Nogales, Arizona (and Sonora, Mexico).

Marnie Ogg is talking to some of the brightest minds in their field, about the topic of light pollution and ways to protect our night skies.
