You’re Never Going To Look At The Night Sky The Same Way Again

Visit any big city and look up at the night sky. What do you see? Probably Jupiter and the moon, and that’s about it. If you live in the country, however, you see millions of stars in the night sky. Too many to possibly count.

Star gazing is no city event, that’s for sure. But that thought got Thierry Cohen, a talented photographer, thinking. What would these cities look like if they shut off their lights at night? He took on a new project to show the world what their cities would look like darkened. Have a look:

Brooklyn

Pretty neat, isn’t it? It makes me want to do more to limit light pollution where I live. Maybe if we all got involved in going dark, we could see a few more stars in the night sky.
