Miles from any metropolitan areas, the region around the monument is one of the darkest places in the lower 48 states. Now it’s been officially recognized for its lack of light pollution by the International Dark Sky Association. Mark Duggan spoke with Sonya Popelka, who oversees the night sky viewing programs at Dinosaur, about the designation.
