Light night­mare

Sky at Night Magazine - - INTERACTIVE -

Thank you for pub­lish­ing the thought­pro­vok­ing poster of the ex­tent of light pol­lu­tion over Bri­tain and Ire­land in the Oc­to­ber 2017 is­sue. Un­til they see such im­ages, many astronomers have lit­tle re­al­i­sa­tion of the ex­tent of the prob­lem, which, sadly, is not widely known about but threat­ens ev­ery­body’s ex­pe­ri­ence of the night sky.

Bob Mi­zon, Co­or­di­na­tor, British Astro­nom­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion Com­mis­sion for Dark Skies (CfDS)

It’s cru­cial that as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble know that our night sky is slowly dis­ap­pear­ing. For more, see the CfDS web­site at www.britas­tro.org/dark-skies – Ed
