Let There Be Night
Eight out of 10 children born in America today will never know a night sky dark enough to see the Milky Way. In our modern world, where nights are getting brighter, most of us no longer experience true darkness. Dr. Paul Bogard, assistant professor of English at JMU, is the author of the new book, "The End of Night: Searching for Natural Darkness in the Age of Artificial Light." He believes we now suffer from light pollution and that the lack of darkness at night is affecting our physical, mental and spiritual health.
