Recalling When Nighttime Was Dark

Ian Chaney is the director behind the documentary “The City Dark” based on how our night sky has become polluted with light. Until only a few generations ago a campfire was the only light we had, and now we have so much artificial light that we cannot see our own night sky. In the movie Ian shows us that whatever human rhythms were intertwined with our natural cycle of light and dark could have been distorted. Not only does Mr.Chaney show us the consequences to our night sky but he also shows us how it could be hazardous to our health.

I saw this movie recently, and I am usually not a big fan of documentaries but this film was so well made it made me want to go to the darkest place and just watch the sky. I truly enjoyed it and I would definitely would highly recommend this movie.
