Montana is home to some of the largest areas of pristinely dark skies in the country. It’s not known as “Big Sky Country” for nothing. Lynn Powers, the president of the Southwest Montana Astronomical Society, joins us to share about great locations in Montana to see the stars and participate in stargazing programs.
Lynn is a NASA Solar System Ambassador, teaches at Montana State University, is a keynote speaker at numerous astronomy-related events, and holds a Master of Science degree in Science Education. Her list of activities and contributions is extensive, proving her deep passion for the night sky.
