Once one of the biggest sources of wonder, one half of the entire planet’s natural environment, the star-filled nights are vanishing in a yellow haze. Not only has it fogged our view of the stars, it also has been linked to human health problems, environmental disruptions (e.g. the death of migrating birds) and fundamental questions about the impact of a disappearing night sky on the intellectual and spiritual curiosity of future generations.

Light pollution is a serious problem.
