Dark Sky Week was initiated by high-school student Jennifer Barlow in 2003 to raise awareness of poor-quality lighting and its effect on our beautiful night sky.
Not only does light pollution stop us from gazing at the stars, it also wastes energy, changes life’s circadian rhythms, and causes other environmental problems, such as confusion in migrating birds and baby turtles.

We have dark sky week every week now they turn the street lights off at midnight
It's fantastic actually, I was walking home the other night looking up at the stars. It looks so much better without the street lamps. Long live the energy crisis!
A little town in hertfordshire near st albans. (Harpenden) I laughed when I heard it was going to happen. But I like it, it's brought the night back.
