Huge loss of stars visible in night sky due to light pollution say scientists – BBC News


The number of stars visible with the naked eye has reduced dramatically over the last decade due to light pollution, scientists have said.

The cause is “Skyglow” from artificial lighting for city streets and buildings, and the brightness of that glow has increased every year since 2011 according to a study by the German Research Centre for Geosciences.

The affects of light pollution doesn’t just reduce our view of the stars, it has been shown to impact human health and disrupt sleep patterns of nocturnal animals too.
