New Source of Light Pollution

Recommended Posts

Despite the recent petition success, I was looking at the Avex light pollution map and noticed a new source of light pollution!

I many once near-pristine dark sky areas serious local sources of light pollution have appeared, including Mid-Wales and Dartmoor.

It appears that some of the letters naming various counties have started to glow, ruining the view for astronomers who have travelled to these out of the way and once superb viewing sites.

Surely there needs to be an urgent campaign to shorten the length of the names of counties like 'Carmarthenshire' to minimise the impact of the problem?

Look at poor Devon, it gets a double dose of this new scourge!
