The Loneliness of the Long-Abandoned Space Observatory
The Loneliness of the Long-Abandoned Space ObservatoryWarner & Swasey Observatory in Cleveland, Ohio, constructed in 1919 by Worchester R. Warner and Ambrose Swasey. It had a 9.5-inch refractor after its opening, but later a 24-inch Burrell Schmidt and a 36-inch Cassegrain telesope were installed. Due to the growing light pollution in the city a new observatory was built and the complex was sold in 1983. It's abandoned since then.

Light pollution bad for wallaby reproduction
Tammar wallaby and joey | Artificial light is causing some wallabies to delay when they give birth, putting them out of sync with the food resources they need to feed their young, new research suggests. And energy-efficient LED lighting could make matters worse, unless care is taken to develop "wildlife-friendly lighting", say the authors in today's Royal Society journal Proceedings B.

Astronauts found something troubling in these shots from space
LED light pollution is now visible from space -- LEDs worsen light pollution by giving off more blue and green light than the high-pressure sodium lights they normally replace. And this artificial light pollution washes out the night sky and is linked to many negative consequences. Disrupted night and day cycles interfere with human sleep patterns while confusing nocturnal animals and altering their hunting interactions, migratory patterns, and internal physiology.
