Light pollution. We may not be able to touch it, but this form of unnatural illumination is causing some serious environmental impacts. In most populated areas, true nighttime no longer exists. Instead, the artificial lights of humanity cast an eerie glow into the sky. This disruption in natural light patterns blocks out stars, disrupts wildlife, and has even been linked to adverse impacts on human health.
Luckily, this form of pollution is completely reversible, and taking part in the dark skies movement does not mean you will have to give up on using artificial light at night. There are plenty of simple ways for individuals from across the globe to make a difference when it comes to managing light pollution, and you may even gain a new appreciation for the power of the natural night sky along the way.

Keep reading to discover why the preservation of dark sky areas and the reversing of light pollution is so important!
