Star Light, Star Bright: Light Polluiton and You
Sooner or later in Mythology, we end up talking about stars, heavens, constellations, and so on. It’s interesting to try and imagine what it must have been like living under a sky that was literally packed with stars every night.
Even though we might think of ourselves living out in the sticks in Rhea County, We get a lot of ambient light from Chattanooga, I’m sure, and some from Cleveland, as well. It turns out that even little old Dayton is quite the hot spot.
This short video “Lost in Light” by Sriram Murali shows just how much we’re missing!
If you’re interested, you can read more about light pollution on DarkSky.org’s website. There are other “darkness maps” around, as well.
