LIGHTS DROWN OUT MILKY WAY FOR THIRD OF WORLD'S POPULATION - Calhoun's Dark Skies An Exception

(06/10/2021)

More than one-third of the world's population can no longer see the Milky Way because of man-made lights

. Among those missing out on awe-inspiring Milky Way views, nearly 80 percent of North Americans and 60 percent of Europeans.

These are the findings of a new global atlas of light pollution, published as part of a recent scientific paper.

Calhoun County WV is one of the few exceptions in the USA, with its lack of artificial light.

Calhoun Park has long been considered as a Dark Skies destination for astronomers.
