"International Dark Sky Week" was created in 2003 by Jennifer Barlow with the goals of appreciating the exquisiteness of the night sky and raise understanding of how poor-quality lighting creates light pollution. Southampton Town Board has approved a resolution to take part in the international week long event which runs from Friday April, 5 to Thursday, April 11, 2013.

Taking part is easy, all you have to do is take the time to look up and gaze at the stars. Another way to participate is to learn more about reducing light pollution which helps conserve energy and increases roadway and walkway safety due to reduced glare.

Jenn Hartnagel, Senior Environmental Advocate at Group for the East End and member of the Southampton Town Dark Sky Advisory Committee stated, "The Town Board recognized the environmental importance of reducing light pollution, which can have a damaging effect on local plant and animal species that rely on a night cycle."
