Dark Skies
    #534993 - 01/29/02 10:10 PM (20 years, 7 months ago)

I saw a special on the Discovery channel about organizations who are trying to preserve the night sky. Astronomers who can't see the sky as clearly today as the could 30 years ago are trying to cut down on the light pollution created by major cities world wide.

I think that's such a great thing. I live a little bit less then an hours drive north from the core of the city, so I've been fairly lucky my entire life by having clean air to breathe and a beautiful sky to get lost in at night.

If orgainizations like this continue thier work, maybe even the city folk can get to enjoy such natural wonders like the infinite amount of stars, galaxies and planets and meteor showers.

The sky is so pretty. We should care about it.

Was in the Navy a few decades ago. We used to run dark-ops, i.e. no lights at night. I used to go topside while in the middle of the Pacific. Had a 360 degree view of the sky. Absolutely nothing like it.

On the Trip-Tips forum they all talk about Pink Floyd and Fantasia. Watching the sky from a remote mountainous area is the way to go.

Hope to do a space vacation before I die and see the stars outside of our atmosphere.

The proof is in the pudding.

Sounds beautiful Swami.
