Dark Sky NM

inviting you to enjoy and protect the New Mexico night sky

Make a Difference for Night, Every Day

Do your part to protect and restore New Mexico's enchanting and vital night-sky environment. Start with these specific action items:

♦ Keep your curtains, shades, or blinds closed at night to prevent light trespass and to lower the risk of bird mortality.

♦ Put floodlights on a motion sensor instead of leaving them on all night.

♦ Fully shield your porch lights and yard lights, especially if kept on all night.

♦ Join the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA), the world's leading organization working to protect night skies.
