    I have selfish reasons to keep my skies as natural as possible. I learned in Astronomy Class at UAB my family deals with light trespass from a neighboring park. I have a small child, and it’s proven hard to trick her into thinking it was nighttime when floodlights are shining in her room. This class inspired me to create positive change in my community. I have joined Starry Skies South in my area, and I encourage others to advocate for their areas as well. My goal is to contact our civic officials, and to get on a path of understanding about how natural skies affect people, plants, animals, everything! Please contact me if you are of the same mind and you need help in your community. Together I hope we can create a platform with our officials to educate and advocate not only the southeast, but everywhere that has a sky.
