Reclaiming the Night

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.
