Most of us have seen how moths in particular seem drawn to lights at night. It may come as a surprise that there’s no clear answer as to why. In the September 14 Earth Matters, Joshua Rose tells us some of the theories to explain the behavior, and goes on to describe how some professional and amateur scientists use light to learn more about moths and other insects.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait a few days and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.
