Imagine a community built around the principles of good lighting and protection of our dark skies. This dream is becoming reality for a fortunate few who have found places where they know that a once gorgeous night sky will not be ruined by irresponsible commercial or neighborhood lighting.
These immerging developments offer many possibilities for stargazers. Some cater to those looking for a protected place to build a weekend retreat with its own private observatory. Others provide a dark-sky option for those looking for the perfect place to spend their retirement enjoying the night skies. While some of these communities simply offer lots for building within a community founded upon responsible lighting ordinances.
This topic will profile dark-sky friendly planned communities.
