Photographing the night sky and avoiding Light Pollution

By | April 10, 2018

If you have never seen a clear, starry sky from a place devoid of light pollution then you don’t know what you’re missing. With the naked eye alone from a dark location, you’ll see thousands of stars, meteors, the zodiacal light, airglow, satellites, the milky way, nebulas, and occasionally auroras and comets.

Light pollution is a side effect of industrial civilisation. Its sources include building exterior and interior lighting, advertising, commercial properties, offices, factories, streetlights, and illuminated sporting venues.

There are places you can go to avoid Light Pollution and enjoy a beautiful night sky. See the resources below to help you find the perfect spot.
