- Light pollution blocks the view of the stars for those who live in the city

- Photographer Sriram Murali has gone out to prove in his new project how much light pollution really affects the view of the beauties of the night sky

- He shot images of the night sky from San Jose down to Death Valley, and gives us a clear comparison of the levels of light pollution on the Bortle scale 

City-dwellers are robbed of the beauty of the night sky full of stars. The cause of this is a phenomenon known as light pollution, artificial light that competes with the starlight in the night sky. The bright lights of the big city eclipse the faint glow of the distant stars.

This was the focus of photographer Sriram Murali’s work. In his photoshoot he would point his camera at the night sky at different distances from the city, and thus demonstrates to us the various degrees of light pollution.
