MCDONALD OBSERVATORY – DARK SKIES INITIATIVE
McDonald Observatory is collaborating with local communities and businesses, including the oil and gas industry, to promote better nighttime lighting, i.e., cost efficiency, improved visibility & safety, and dark skies for the Observatory.
The Tierra Grande Chapter, Texas Master Naturalists has begun partnering with McDonald Observatory, its volunteerism program and Dark Skies Initiative.
Images below were taken during a recent Tierra Grande field trip to McDonald Observatory for an orientation and tour and strategic planning session centered around volunteer opportunities at the observatory and in support of the dark skies initiative.
