Light Pollution Petition

Post by cstone » Sat May 14, 2016 12:20 pm

From an e-mail
This is a new petition to call for the control of Light Pollution, and protect the UK dark skies we have left.

Please I would be grateful if you can forward to all those you value natures dark skies!

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/119428
Celestron 11" Telescope
Eq6 Pro Mount
Eq5 Mount
EQ Mod
QHY5 Guide camera
Cannon 1000D SLR Camera

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......

Light pollution - affects other species too!

I noticed that the petition mentions that light-pollution affects other species too, and recalled this striking example of beetles using the Milky Way to orient themselves, which was mentioned again in the news in the past week:
