GENEVA LAKE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Being "in the dark" has many negative meanings, but those involved in a movement raising awareness of light pollution say it's exactly where we need to be at night.

Kate Meredith is the president of Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM, a group that formed in the wake of the closing of Yerkes Observatory in order to continue research and education of astrophysics in the Williams Bay area. Kate says one of their new goals is to study ways to reduce excess light in the area.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael Schlesinger joined the team of students and adults in Walworth County studying the impact sky glow has on humans, wildlife and the environment.
