After what seems like a long period of cloudy weather, lets looks forward to what the July night sky has to offer. Hopefully the weather will clear up and we’ll have plenty of time to appreciate Kauai’s dark skies. You can help keep Kauai’s night sky dark by checking around your house for stray or unneeded light. Try to point your outdoor lighting downwards or shield it, consider motion sensors, and choose lightbulbs with a low color temperature (more yellow). You may be surprised how many stars you can bring out in your own backyard, and your neighbor may appreciate it too!
