Kathleen Horner has created a beautiful way that you can celebrate and learn about how important dark skies. It has become more and more difficult to find a dark sky to watch the skies, and during Global Astronomy Month and International Year of Light, this craft will show you ways in which you can revisit The Night Sky.

This 3D to scale representation of a front yard shows different ways that urban areas can utilize easy solutions to preserve the dark sky. In Kathleen's instructions, she encourages you to add any other backdrop, whether it is a field, mountains, or even a downtown street, this diorama will teach you proper ways to shield bulbs and lower the brightness of street lights to let the stars shine.
