To increase the number of visitors and their enjoyment of the forest, the Hoosier National Forest is pursuing Dark Sky designation for parts of the forest within Orange County. Light sensors—developed by IU School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering Professor Bryce Himebaugh—will be deployed in the fall semester to generate data needed to identify accessible locations with low enough light pollution to qualify for designation.
