Summary:"Six out of 10 people in the US have never seen out Milky Way Galaxy arch across their night sky from where they live. And the problem of light pollution is quickly getting worse. Within a couple of generations in the US, only the national parks will have dark enough skies to see the Milky Way. Light pollution may be a global problem, but the solutions are local. To help people """"see the light,"""" an international star-hunting program for students, teachers, and the general public was created called GLOBE at Night. GLOBE at Night is now in its 6th year and is hosted by the US National Optical Astronomy Observatory. "
