The Milky Way shines above a sea of clouds covering nearby towns and villages in Geumsan County of the South Korea. The view is captured from Mount Daedunsan. The bright star on the left is Deneb in Cygnus, while Altair, the brightest star of Aquila, is visible neat the center. Pan along the Milky Way to the right to find bright star Antares in the constellation Scorpius, near the brightest part of the Milky Way and along the central bulge of the galaxy.

    This “magical” sight obviously has its origins in extreme urban illuminations – which spread out to “enlighten” the clouds. “Pretty” pictures like this should urge us to severely question our modern lifestyle for at least three reasons: i) energy has to be saved world-wide; ii) the health of nature’s living resources (including mankind) has to be preserved; and iii) via light-polluted skies, childrens’ eyes will no longer be attracted to look up and view the starry sky with awe, and deep mental inspiration – their attitude in evaluating nature and their place in the universe will severely be impaired!
