Light Pollution A view of the suburban sky with, and without, power to outdoor lights, from the International Dark-Sky Association. When the eastern power grid failed, from Ontario to New York City, in August 2003, it revealed something many city dwellers had never seen: from horizon to horizon, a sky full of stars. Then the power came back on.
