Light pollution is a hot topic. Many organizations around the world are working to protect our nighttime environment from the damage of artificial lights. In alliance with the International Dark-Sky Association crowdfunded project, SKYGLOW, is exploring North America’s dark skies, and the footage is out of this world.
SKYGLOW is raising awareness of the phenomena known as “skyglow,” caused by the increasing spread of electrical outdoor lighting. The excessive use of electrisity does more than restrict our enjoyment of stargazing and night-sky phenomena. It can also have harmful consequences on our fragile environment and be particularly damaging to wildlife.
