We are so pleased to announce Helper City has officially become a International Dark Sky destination!
If you want to know what that means:
An IDA International Dark Sky Community is a town, city, municipality or other legally organized community that has shown exceptional dedication to the preservation of the night sky through the implementation and enforcement of a quality outdoor lighting ordinance, dark sky education and citizen support of dark skies. Dark Sky Communities excel in their efforts to promote responsible lighting and dark sky stewardship, and set good examples for surrounding communities.
It is an honor to be recognized as a dark sky community. Let us take a moment tonight to look up at our marvelous sky, and appreciate our view of the moon and stars!
