Of Things Long Gone

Night and Twilight

The Orion Constelation rises above the abandoned vineyard on a cold March evening. This photo also serves as a cautionary tale – the purple tones in the sky are caused by the lights of nearby towns. The top portion of the sky is completely black, as it should be at this late hour. Despite the severe light pollution, we can still enjoy a starry sky in the rural areas of our country. People living near or in big cities can only see the brightest stars or no stars at all. We should do everything possible to reduce light pollution and bring back the natural starry sky to as many people as possible.
