The other night, I was lucky enough to witness a full-ish sky of stars (from a Mediterranean ferry). It was so breathtaking that I felt a deep sadness about the way widespread light pollution has deprived most of us of this sight

@trellick I still remember a night 25 years ago down in Somerset with my oldest school friend, laying on our backs at a village cricket green staring up at the sky, a sparkling blanket with occasional shooting stars. It's so sad that's something I've only witnessed a few times, our ancestors would have seen it every night.
