Light pollution is like climate change: not everyone believes it is real. But we do.

This pool is dedicated to night shots that show man's illuminating influence or light pollution. Please No solo moon shots or star trails or light painting without some sort of ambient light source, or far off city glow etc… showing. We want light Pollution in all of the group's images.



Group Description

Light pollution is like climate change: not everyone believes it is real. But we do.

Tonight, look around. You will see lights everywhere: a streetlamp spilling light into your bedroom; vanity halogens bathing houses; glowing convenience stores, traffic, billboards, even farms. You will see lights, but probably not many stars.

The night sky that has inspired people for thousands of years is disappearing, washed away by artificial light. What's left of that vanishing night is the subject of photographs posted here.

That said, we ask that all shots show evidence of man's illuminating ability. No close-up of the moon / pure astrophotography… we want shots preferably that show night sky and the loss of it's natural splendor whenever possible.

In other words, the more man made lights, the better.


please feel free to invite others as you find outrageously cool night shots where man's illuminating influence can be seen. Just paste this invitation in the comment area:
