The stars are away. When I was a boy, I can remember that you could saw the stars of the milk street. It was very fascinating. Sometimes, especially in winter we made a walk in the night with the parents and I wonderd about the millions of stars you could see.
Have you ever seen the milk street? Can you remember? No, I am sure it is not possible in europe these days. The light pollution is too hight. There is to much light in the night in the industrial areas of the world.
So our children will not see the milk street with their own eyes. They only can hear about it from their parents or be impressed of photos shot on satellits. The image on the left shows the light pollution of europe.
