Darkness in Distress
Learn about light pollution, and about a new mindset and new technology that are poised to slow — and perhaps reverse — this bane of modern life.
Kelly Beatty, Science Journalist

Light pollution robs us of the night sky’s beauty, negatively affects the ecosystem, and creates an in-your-face waste of energy. But a new mindset and new technology are poised to slow — and perhaps reverse — this bane of modern life.
