Report on the Workshop on Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society available

From 5 to 9 October 2020, the online Workshop on Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society took place.  The report is now available online .

It describes the impact of human activities on the visibility of the starry sky and the progress of the science of astronomy and makes recommendations for actions that local governments can take to preserve dark and quiet skies.

Next workshops on this issue will be the SATCON2 workshop in Spring 2021 and an in-person follow-up of the Conference “Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society” is scheduled for next autumn.
