Partially filmed in Montauk, The City Dark is a feature documentary about light pollution, including interviews with astronomers, naturalists, biologists, and ornithologists describing the effects of the loss of darkness on our health and well-being.        

Described by the New York Times as:   “A documentary about light pollution that is entertaining and thought provoking” . . . the “interviews explore what our increasing inability to see the night sky means for us philosophically.”

If skies are clear bring your family and friends to Montauk County Park and explore the night sky with Montauk Observatory astronomers.
