Loss Of The Night (Android App)
Take part in a world-wide citizen science project that measures star visibility and light pollution. Help create a database for research on health, environment and society by telling scientists which stars you can see at your location.
In many parts of the world, the night sky shines with waste artificial light from poorly designed street lamps. This light pollution spoils the beauty of the stars and changes the natural environment.
But light pollution is not only a problem for astronomy. Scientists all over the world are studying how light pollution affects health, society, and the environment. Based on the well-known Google Sky Map, this app is a tool to measure star visibility without expensive equipment. Just look up to the sky, find certain stars, and tell us whether you can see them or not!
Using the Loss of the Night app is fun, educational, promotes citizen science, and is an active contribution to protect the environment.
Stargazing connects you to the universe, especially in places free of light pollution. Find out how many stars you can see, and compare it to other areas on the GLOBE at Night map. Learn about the stars and constellations, and find places where you can still see the Milky Way. If you’re lucky enough to live in such a place, let others know! Counting stars is a great experience and family activity!
Make a change! Most light pollution is caused by bad lamp design, although overly lit areas contribute as well. By finding areas with good lighting design, you will help other communities learn what works. This will keep our bedrooms darker, and the sky full of stars. Proper design also saves energy and money!
Take an active part in science! The Loss of the Night app allows students to measure light pollution and star visibility for their own science projects, and at the same time become part of a global citizen science network. Measurements are sent anonymously to the GLOBE at Night database (www.GLOBEatNight.org), a citizen science project that has monitored light pollution since 2006. GLOBE at Night creates worldwide maps of star visibility and light pollution, which scientists can use to analyse correlations between light pollution and health, biodiversity, life quality, and many more factors.
You are also welcome to get into contact with the light pollution researchers from Verlust der Nacht that built this app, and learn about their other projects (www.verlustdernacht.de). The app provides some basic information on the history, importance, and consequences of artificial light at night.

The fall was not scripted, Anne actually slipped while filming, although she started laughing they kept with the scene. The director didn’t yell cut because she waved her hand a little (what looked like when she waved at Lily to keep talking) to signal that she wanted to keep filming the shot. The editor eventually chose this shot because he felt it fit Mia’s character a lot more than the scripted shots they had.
how did she not start crying after getting cunt punted that hard.
What is this from?
yup this is real.
Matt Vickers, Micah O’Kelley, Mike de Laet, Gabriel Baws, Bronson Taylor, Chris Smith, Aladin Trabelsi, Machi Maedero all support rape.
Yes, that’s right, Matt Vickers, Micah O’Kelley, Mike de Laet, Gabriel Baws, Bronson Taylor, Chris Smith, Aladin Trabelsi, and Machi Maedero have all loudly expressed their fondness for committing rape.
Hope those aren’t your real names, guys, since the combined wrath of Tumblr could really throw off any google searches future employers might make…
Wow, that is fucking disgusting.
Dear guys in the photo
(And that ladies and gentlemen is why I refuse to look attractive.)
this is why i am a god damned alien. i hate the human race, specifically my gender of them
I HATE HUMANITY
Not ‘wake her up and have sex with her’… no, RAPE HER!!???
Just another reason I hate men!!!! Even if they wouldn’t actually DO it, they think it’s cool and macho to SAY they would!
if i saw her in my bed asleep. id cover her with a blanket and go sleep on the couch because i have a single bed
Are there people who don’t reblog this?
I can only assume that the ones who haven’t aren’t reading the right books.
