Light pollution is not just a problem for astronomers, but it is also a problem that affects the environment, the energy sector, as well as our health.
Part of the efforts to make others aware of dark-sky preservation is the measurement of light pollution levels as well as sharing wonderful images of the night sky in a vantage point of a dark site. I decided to upload some of my astrophotos of various starfields in the Philippines to aid in dark-sky awareness.
