Video: Lost in Light


As artificial light brightens the night sky, we increasingly lose our view of the stars, planets and constellations, as well as the sense that we’re part of the universe. Showing eight different levels of light pollution from urban San Jose to Death Valley, Sriram Murali uses timelapse to dramatic effect, implicitly asking what else we lose when we can’t see the stars.
