Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society

06 October 2020 - 09 October 2020

The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs and Spain, jointly with the International Astronomical Union (IAU), are announcing a Conference with the title "Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society". The event will result in a document that describes what measures Governments and private enterprises can adopt to mitigate the negative impact of technological implementations on astronomy (e.g. urban lighting, radio broadcasting and satellite constellations' deployment) without diminishing the effectiveness of the services they offer to citizens. The final outcome document, intended to become a reference to further analysis of the situation, will be presented to the intergovernmental Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) for consideration.
