Blue Dot 188: Half The Park Is After Park: In Conversation With Tyler Nordgren

Sep 11, 2020


Dave talks to longtime friend and fellow astronomer and artist Tyler Nordgren. In 2017 Tyler invited Dave to join his viewing of the Great American Eclipse in Kimberly, Oregon and they'll discuss that experience as well as their mutual love for the national parks and Tyler's ongoing work with them to promote the dark night sky as one of their precious natural resources where "half the park is after dark!"

 

Tyler's globe trotting eclipse watching came to a halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic but you'll find out that in Tyler's case, that was actually a life saving circumstance. Find out about the next great American eclipse in 2024 as well as a wide ranging conversation about the dark night sky and two kindred souls with a lifetime connection to it.
