Entire generations are growing up unable to appreciate the wonder of a dark, starry sky. Eighty percent of Americans live under too much light pollution to see the Milky Way. Light pollution is more than just an eyesore; it has serious consequences for our health, safety, and environment. Luckily, there are easy win-win solutions that don't require living in darkness. Learn about why light pollution matters and what can be done to reclaim our skies.
