Case Problem 4
There are no Data Files needed for this Case Problem.
Hammond Astronomical Society Sarah Vernon coordinates star-gazing tours for the
Hammond Astronomical Society. To ensure that participants can see as well as possible in
the night sky, they are asked to follow a set of rules that astronomers refer to as a dark sky
protocol. You can use Word table features to create an instruction sheet describing the
club’s dark sky protocol. Figure 3-36 shows Sarah’s sketch. Complete the following steps.
Use your table skills
to create the instruction
sheet shown in
Turn off flashlights.
Turn off all interior lights before
Shield computers with red foil.
Turn off headlights.
Shield all lights for charts and
confine them to the target area.
Park so backup lights are not
required upon exit.
Rationale: Most people need 30 minutes to achieve optimum night vision.
Accidental exposure to light from cars, computers or flashlights means
the period of dark adaptation must begin again. Some individuals can
tolerate small amounts of red light without significant vision degradation,
as long as the light source is dim and does not shine into the eyes. For
more information, see Sarah Vernon.
