Problem increased since 2011
According to media reports, a decrease in the number of stars was observed in the last decade. Scientists attributed this to ‘skyglow’ caused by artificial light and said that since 2011, the illumination on the earth is increasing every year at night.
Are the stars really disappearing?
Dr. Christopher Kaba, scientist at the German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam, says the stars are disappearing. Kaba and his colleagues have published this discovery in the journal Science. According to a report, during the last 12 years, scientists found in their study that there has been a lot of change in the visibility of stars. This claim was considered close to the truth when people also observed the same thing.
Light increasing every year in space
The project to test the visibility of stars has been named ‘Globe at Night’. It was said in the study that every year the brightness of the sky is increasing by about 10 percent annually. Late night lights in cities can be a major reason for such a situation.
light pollution is a problem
Scientists Fabio Falchi and Salvador Barra are doing research on light pollution. In a special commentary published along with their research, it was said that the pollution caused by light becomes a hindrance in seeing clearly in space at night. Bara claimed that what people do not understand, however, is that light pollution from photographs is the reason why the constellations are not clearly visible at night.
Space brightness affected
According to Dr. Christopher Kaba, scientist at the German Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam, the light pollution situation can be tackled. Modern LED bulbs should be used for this. The Kaaba believes that all the lights, whether they are the usual household lights or the decorative ones, are dimming the brightness of the sky.
