Maybe you can spot a few stars and the Moon. However, if you can get away from the glare of city lights, a whole galaxy is on display. The International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) works to protect nighttime environments from light pollution. The association encourages people to think about the types of lights they use and provides advice on how to keep the sky dark at night. The IDA has named several places around the world as dark sky areas.

  也許你能看到一些星星和月亮。然而,如果你能遠離刺眼的城市燈光,整個銀河會展現在你眼前。國際暗空協會(IDA)致力於保護夜間環境免受光汙染。該協會鼓勵人們思考所使用的燈光類型,並提供如何讓夜空保持黑暗的建議。國際暗空協會已將世界各地的多個地方選定為暗空區域。
