Starry Chicago is an educational program that was created as a result of the Aspen Challenge competition. The year 2016 is the first time that Chicago has participated in the Aspen Challenge and we are part of the first generation of Chicago public high school students that are on this journey.
If you would like to learn more about the Aspen Challenge visit their website here.
We are a program that educates the community about the importance of preserving the night sky and that advocates for dark-sky friendly policies in order to mitigate the harmful effects of light pollution; our vision is a Chicago whose starry night sky reflects a healthy and sustainable urban environment.
