Stars in the sky

The other night I was walking home from the kids school after my daughters 5th Grade Curriculum Night and looked up to see the Big Dipper. What stood out however was how dim the night time sky looked. I thought back to our recent summer vacation and remembered how much darker and crowded teh sky looked. I often describe it to friends as looking as though there isn’t enough room in the sky to fit even one more star.

This article over at Yale Environment 360 entitled “Bring Back the Night: A Fight Against Light Pollution” by Paul Bogard via the Environmental News Network, really brings that issue home.

Star Light, Star Bright!
