Goodbye

Hi 😊 To my dear reader, as this semester is coming to an end, this shall be the last post of my blog. Just as I have mentioned in my ‘Are we aware?’ post, this post shall not be about light pollution, instead, it would be about my thoughts on doing this blog for my

Are We Aware?

Hey, are you back for more? 😊 This shall be my last post about light pollution, but it is not the last post of my blog. 😊 In this post, I shall be examining how aware are people regarding light pollution. When I was researching about light pollution, I get the sense that people are

Managing Light Shows

ello! In my previous post, we understand that light shows are increasingly popular and that they can contribute to light pollution significantly; light shows often have high intensity lights that are directed into our environment.

I can’t see the stars

Hey there friend, welcome back! If it is night time now, look up at your sky. What do you see? Most of the time, it would be our lonely moon accompanied by passing clouds; the stars that exist in our childhood song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star are missing. As mentioned in my previous post, majority
