The Night Sky Above Horizons Village

To Gary Strong, a Horizons Village resident and amateur astrophotographer, the dark sky above Horizons Village is a gift. Horizons Village has policies that protect our community, but the one that he especially appreciates is the policy that reminds residents to be mindful of the lights they have on at night. Residents are encouraged to only use lights when we need them, and, if we want a security light on at night, we try to have ones that only shine downward. It is because of our community’s dark skies one can capture incredible images like this one of the nebula in Orion’s sword, which Gary took from his front yard.
