Harun Mehmedinovic is a Bosnian American jack of all trades; screenwriter, director, cinematographer, professor and author. More importantly, for the astronomical community, he is an advocate for dark skies and a crusader in the battle against light pollution. In partnership with photographer Gavin Heffernan he launched SKYGLOWPROJECT.COM, an ongoing crowdfunded project about the impact our unnatural light has on North America’s night skies.

Harun will be visiting from Arizona to talk about his project, successes, and the threat to which our dark skies are being subjected. Join the members of the Austin Astronomical Society for our monthly meeting and Harun’s presentation on Friday. Then come out to the River Hills Neighborhood Association Under the Stars event Saturday to learn more and take in some night time observing.  Learn more
