The Night Sky with Bryan Hansel
The Night Sky with Bryan Hansel

Grand Marais Public Library | Grand Marais MN

Cook County has some of the darkest night skies in the world. On the Bortle scale, a scale that rates the darkness of the night skies with 1 being the darkest and 9 the brightest, Cook County is mainly a 2 or 3, but we even have an area of the county that rates a Bortle 1. That’s as dark as the darkest places in the world and one of the few Bortle 1s in the lower 48. It’s dark!

Join award-winning professional photographer and outdoor educator Bryan Hansel for a presentation about the night skies of the north. He’ll present images from the Lake Superior region and beyond and will talk about how he made those images. Additionally, he’ll address our dark sky resources, health and wildlife issues related to light pollution and what we can do to preserve our night skies and how we can capitalize on the opportunities that dark skies present. You’ll also learn about what you can do in Cook County to help us gain a International Dark Sky Association designation.
