The Milky Way is Lost… — 2 Comments

  2. I was surprised to read in the Smithsonian article that was linked to this post that people are fond of the Sodium lights. Often people have complained that Sodium lights are garish yellow-orange. Whatever kind of light is used, the problem is just that there is too much of it, and it tends to be directed in ways that don’t illuminate the ground and do shine directly into the eyes, and into the sky. With a little common sense in lighting, we could see more, have safer driving and better security, waste less money and energy, and have darker skies. But that message can be surprisingly hard to convey.
