Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Light pollution is a major threat to astronomy across the entire developed world. The night sky that most of us can see bears little relationship to the spectacular vistas that our ancestors have gazed at for tens of thousands of years. It is ironic that as our understanding of the universe has improved, our ability to see it has been dramatically reduced by the skyglow of our civilization.

In the second edition of Light Pollution - Responses and Remedies, Bob Mizon delves into the history and practice of lighting and how its misue has not only stolen the stars, but blighted our lives and those of our fellow-creatures on this planet. This book suggests how we can win back the night sky and at the same time save energy and money, improve our health, and even lower crime rate! It also includes a list of targets for urban stargazers, and recommendations for ensuring sane lighting worldwide.

About the Author

Bob Mizon, MBE, FRAS, is a planetarium operator and astronomy lecturer, best known in the scientific and environmental community as the co-coordinator of the British Astronomical Association's Campaign for Dark Skies, which aims to turn back the tide of light pollution which has seriously affected our view of the stars over the last 50 years.
