Folks,
I sent a message to Gary Honis of POLC about possibly combining some efforts 
statewide on the Light Pollution front. It was brought up at their 
meeting(last paragraph below). My feeling is that there is a lot of good 
information to be shared and clout in united efforts. Any thoughts/interest 
in trying to share ideas with our eastern neighbors?
Dark Skies,
Bob Mickey
