Truckee Dark Sky Program
We are losing the night sky. The Milky Way is no longer visible to one third of humanity and to 80 percent of Americans. Though this may sound inconsequential, stargazing is not all that stands to be lost. Excessive lighting and loss of dark skies threaten wildlife, contribute to climate change, and diminish human art, culture, and quality of life. Truckee has the opportunity to preserve and protect our naturally dark skies and bring together the community to appreciate this scarce resource.
The Truckee Dark Sky Program creates year-round, social and educational opportunities for visitors and residents to observe and appreciate the night sky. It raises awareness of and generates advocacy against light pollution threats to human health, environment, climate, and culture.
