Yep I think light pollution is something that most dont register. It was only after a night spent in the Australian desert I realised how wondrous the sky is without the orange fug. Maybe one night a year could be 'UK Skynight' when all the lights are turned off.

I may only live in crappy old Dover, but I didn't realise how much light pollution there was, or how much I was missing, until I went to Ireland last September.

We were staying on a farm, in the middle of acres of fields, where there were no street lights for miles. When all the lights from the house were off, we stood outside and looked at the sky. It was infact the first time I'd seen the Milky Way.

It's a shame. We really don't need all the light that we seem to think we do.

It may be night elsewhere in the country, but it always looks like it's still daytime over Canary Wharf. You can see where the sky changes colour, it's quite disturbing.

When I move house (end of Feb, fingers crossed) I'll be able to see Canary Wharf in the distance at the end of my road. I'll keep an eye out for the sky around it changing colour at night.

wasn't electric avenue in brixton the first street with electric lights in london?
