It’s a breathtaking sight, looking down at a glowing Earth. An ominous one, too.
For those of us living inside the glow who can only look upward, the brilliant stars are becoming less so. They’re fading behind streetlights and porchlights and lamplights and headlights. And in Glimpse‘s forthcoming Cosmos issue, Scott Kardel wants them back.
Kardel spends his days (and starry nights) at Palomar Observatory, where astronomers dodge terrestrial lights to capture cosmic ones. Stay tuned for “Dimming the Lights” in March 2010 for reasons why not to be scared of the dark.
