The Planetary Report, June 2012: Dark Skies?

The June Solstice issue of our member magazine The Planetary Report is out! The feature article, by W. Scott Kardel of the International Dark-Sky Association, looks at the ecological, economic, and philosophical problem of light pollution. My inside-the-cover Snapshots from Space features image processing work by Gordan Ugarkovic. Bill Nye's Planetary Society Kids section shows you how to build your own MarsDial, and on its back page I share some weird and interesting facts about Mars' moons.

Planetary Society members should already have received the magazine in the mail. Or, if you're a member who prefers electronic-only delivery of the magazine, you can download it here. You'll have to log in to the website to be able to download it; if you don't know how to do that, contact the membership department. (You can also contact them if you'd like to switch to electronic-only delivery.) The Planetary Society Kids section is available for download for all.

And if you're not a member, why not? Please join us! You'll get the magazine while you add your voice to the strength of the tens of thousands of others who speak up for space exploration through The Planetary Society.
