Added 1 new A* page:This BBC article from last week about light pollution mentioned that "a third of the world now cannot see the Milky Way." I know I've never seen it from here in Seattle! And I'm not sure I did see it then (this was some time ago), but maybe the closest I've come was when my dad and brother and I were out clambering around some rocks or something out in a wilderness area at night—I think this was the time we drove down to the Grand Canyon, maybe—and I looked up at the non-light-polluted sky and was like "ohhhhhh"—because there were a lot more stars than I'd seen before! Psh. City folk. (Also the Milky Way is lower on the horizon and thus harder to see from the northern hemisphere. : p)
