Created in 2003 by high-school student Jennifer Barlow, International Dark Sky Week has grown to become a worldwide event and a key component of Global Astronomy Month. Each year it is held in April around Earth Day and Astronomy Day. This year celebrations begin Saturday, April 22 Earth Day!), and run through Friday, April 28 (click here for resources to use during the week).
