The Milky Way is no longer visible from the cities. This means most humans can no longer enjoy the beauty of the night starry skies. If we continue to light up the night, we will stop wondering what's "out there". We will forget our place in the cosmos.
The video is entirely my work (you can see some individual clips on my profile), shot in Croatia. The urban scenes are from Zagreb, timelapse sequences were taken on Petrova gora, Tičan Observatory, Korenica Observatory (in construction), Pag nad Cres islands. The song "Under the Milky Way" by The Church seemed appropriate to enhance the sense of wonder we get when we see thousands of stars away from light pollution.
Save the night sky. Reduce the light pollution. We will still be able to find our way on the streets if the lights are NOT spilling into the environment.
