More than 80% of the world and more than 99% of the U.S. and European populations live under light-polluted skies. Scientists estimate that in about 10 years, America will have only three dark patches of land where people will be able to clearly see the Milky Way. I talked with photographer and writer Sivani about Dark Sky Conservation, a movement working to protect the night skies - and why it’s so important.
