Is there is a single day set aside emphasizing the right to starlight?
World Night in Defence of the Starlight happens on April 20 every year to remind us of the need to preserve our right to view a dark night sky full of stars and to take steps to prevent its disappearance. The World Night in Defence of the Starlight is promoted annually as part of our cultural, scientific and environmental heritage. Activities can include switching off lights at night to recover the stars and save energy. You can organize artistic competitions, exhibitions, media campaigns, or conferences on the beauty of the night sky. Create artistic materials like videos, music, books, stories, photographs or paintings on the beauty of the night sky. Identify and possibly protect dark skies oases. Visit an astronomical observatory. Or organize a star party. More information will be posted soon. In the meantime please visit the World Night website.
