Those wishing to find out more about the problems of light pollution and what to do about it will find a great deal of information and advice at the British Astronomical Association's Campaign for Dark Skies.

http://www.britastro.org/dark-skies/

All aspects of light pollution are looked at, from the disappearing night sky to the effects on wildlife and, with many years experience in campaigning, they can advise you on the best way to get involved in the battle against this growing problem. Should you become active, the SPA would be delighted if you kept us up-to-date via the forum.



"Half of our environment is above the horizon. Half of our environment is not protected by the force of law. The night sky, by its very nature a site of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding natural beauty, has been quietly and gradually taken away, over the last fifty years, from those dwelling in towns and urban fringe areas, throughout the developed world. Sky-glow and obtrusive waste upward lighting also detract from the character of the night-time scene and are detrimental to local amenity, not just for astronomers, but for the public in general".

Bob Mizon, head of the UK Campaign for Dark Skies
