Deep Sky This Month
In the Eyepiece : Objects
to Observe in December
It's not only Astronomers who
should care, and astronomers should be less pessimistic.
I am often taken aback by what I
hear people say about light pollution. Many non-astronomers have concerns
about unnecessary government intrusion/regulation, and have come to see light
pollution as an issue that only affects astronomers. And worse yet--many
of my fellow astronomers have come to believe that fighting light pollution is a
lost cause, particularly near major urban areas. Happily, both of these
points of view are uninformed.
