Night Blight: Mapping England’s light pollution and dark skies

LUC and Campaign to Protect Rural England


Our view of the stars - a source of infinite amazement for scientists, casual observers and the millions of us that seek out rural places to rest and recuperate - is obscured by light pollution. Many children will grow up never seeing the Milky Way, our own galaxy, because of the impact of artificial light. The Night Blight campaign uses satellite data to create the most detailed maps ever of Britain’s light pollution and dark skies, allowing free public access to information identifying where light is spilling up into the night sky and where urgent action is needed.
