If it’s happening in the North Valley, and has anything to do with astronomy, you can read about it here. We maintain this page for the benefit of North Valley residents who value the precious resource of dark night skies, and to showcase some of our public outreach activities. We all moved here to enjoy the rural lifestyle, spacious desert, and starry sky. DFAC is committed to preserving your view of the stars. If you have any relevant news you’d like to post here, any questions about this content, or need more information on any related topic, please contact us.
