We chat with Mark Derksen, my husband, about creating a stargazing oasis in your own backyard. Mark is a Dark Sky Lighting expert and he gives some great tips on how to choose the right kind of lighting for your stargazing space to provide safety while also protecting your ability to see the stars.
I also share some other suggestions for adding fun elements to enhance your entire stargazing experience.
