A recent university survey estimates that two-thirds of the world’s population cannot see the hazy band of stars in the overhead night sky. Light pollution has without a doubt turned night into day and has robbed an entire generation out of a sky filled with stars. It is a global threat that not only ruins our views of the cosmos, but also wastes money and natural resources.

By utilizing the power of the internet coupled with handheld devices like tablets and smartphones – it now becomes and fun and easy project for entire families to participate and become aware of the natural heritage we are all being robbed of.
