Our ancestors were once able to behold the twinkling night sky like the one pictured after every sunset, but thanks to inefficient outdoor lighting, that experience is becoming endangered. The Night Sky Conservation movement was started in hopes of reversing this sad truth, and Lauren Sweat, an intern at Inks Lake State Park, is doing her part in educating residents of the Hill Country on the issue.
