Light Pollution (Infographic)

light pollution infographicYou’ve probably heard people complaining about light pollution before, but if you rarely leave urban areas you may not have noticed just how fascinating the night sky can be. On a clear night, away from the city lights, it’s possible to see satellites traversing the sky and hundreds of ‘shooting stars’ darting through the atmosphere.

We don’t have a political stance on light pollution, we just recommend that anyone living in an urban area goes out and experiences the ‘excellent dark-sky site’ for themselves.
