Today, the majority of the population in our large cities cannot see the night sky with their bare eyes. When most of us step outside and look at our skies instead of stars we see light pollution which translates into a disruption of night patterns for wildlife, creating an unbalance in our eco-system that affects us in more ways than we realize. Understanding the effects of light pollution and how to prevent it will go a long way in preserving the view of the night sky while creating a partnership with the natural environment. We need to become more aware of the causes (as well as the state of) light pollution in order to be able to begin to take remedial steps into ensuring a view of the night sky. In hopes to share knowledge and create awareness, we will be updating this page with information from our findings as we move about out in the real world.
