Cypress Wars: Episode III – A Bright Future

Situated between Miami and Naples, Big Cypress National Preserve is in danger from the effects of ambient light emitting from nearby cities. What will it take to make sure the night sky in the preserve is protected for future generations? How can humans answer the call to ensure that we don't drown out our dark night skies? What impacts does this light have on the species that call this place home? Join our night sky rangers as they dive deeper into these questions in the last episode of Cypress Wars.

Following the Cypress Wars program, the South Florida Amateur Astronomers Assocation is hosting a virtual telescope viewing event from the Fox Observatory. Please visit their Facebook page to find all the details.
