Edition 15 of the Astronomy On-line Newspaper

First Results from the Light Pollution Project

You will surely remember the Astronomy On-Line Collaborative Project on Light Pollution. It was announced some days ago in a Newspaper article.

Despite the rather bad weater during the recent days and nights, quite a few Astronomy On-Line groups were able to make measurements according to the method described in the text. The idea was to judge the magnitude of the faintest star which you could just see with the unaided eye. The fainter the magnitude, the smaller would be the light pollution in your area.

Take a look at the provisional report.
