Reclaiming the Night will be a feature-length documentary following the story of Dr. Samuel Singer as he tirelessly works to make Jackson, Wyoming and neighboring Grand Teton National Park Dark Sky Certified. His story will be supplemented by the alarming consequences of excessive lighting at night, and why it’s so essential that the true night sky be restored to his town, and beyond. It’s not just about seeing a mesmerizing night sky. The United States alone is spending over $2,000,000,000.00 every single year just on unnecessary lighting. The side-effects of this wasted energy are weakened human health, poorer visibility and safety on our streets, and damage to wildlife. Up to 1,000,000,000 birds are killed every year just from light pollution. To find out more, watch the trailer.

San Rafael Swell
The San Rafael Swell was created by the same forces that created nearby Capitol Reef National Park and resulted in some similar geology. Exposed as a large, eroded wrinkle in the earth's crust, it features dozens of miles of canyon ranging from slot canyons to one known as the Little Grand Canyon.
Capitol Reef National Park
One of Utah's more underrated national parks, Capitol Reef National Park is not only an outdoor enthusiasts paradise, but also boasts one of the darkest night skies in the country. The Milky Way Galaxy shines a little brighter over the Waterpocket Fold, an enormously unique feature that could only be found on the Colorado Plateau, the main feature of this national park.
Yellowstone National Park
The world's first national park, Yellowstone National Park ignited a conservation frenzy due to its abundantly unique geology and wildlife. It's a home to countless species of wildlife and plant life and offers a glimpse into how well nature can take care of itself when given the chance. A park that is larger than both Delaware and Connecticut combined, it has endless trails to explore as well as lessons to teach anyone willing to learn. Yellowstone National Park is a truly unique gift that has more to offer than many humans have even begun to realize.
