Central Idaho is now home to the only dark sky reserve in the United States — the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve — and it’s one of only 12 in the world.
To celebrate, Idaho Conservation League is teaming up the Konditorei Restaurant to bring you the Milky Way. At the Konditorei you will have the chance to learn about the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve, the first such reserve in the nation. Hear more about how this reserve is preserving and enhancing our superior nighttime ambiance and how it is benefiting our health, environment and economy.
You will also be given an introduction to the fall sky, featuring several prominent constellations. You will learn the lore behind these celestial patterns and have access to a telescope for viewing deep sky objects. A number of star clusters, nebulae and galaxies are possible targets for the evening’s program.
