Light pollution on Chicago local news! new
      #5314117 - 07/12/12 11:19 AM

Audrey Fischer, a HUGE dark sky advocate for not just everywhere in the world, but Chicago in particular, was interviewed by the NBC affiliate yesterday. I haven't even watched this interview yet, but knowing Audrey, I'm sure she hit the right points - but importantly, she got a LOT of exposure this way! Way to go Aud!

Hmmm... video works okay for me. Maybe a different browser? I'm using Google Chrome and the video loaded right away.

Great video! I liked the fly-over shots that show the light fixtures putting out light straight up. That really helps make the point that we’re not trying to have people drive and walk around in the dark, but to just eliminate the light going directly up.
