He said Denmark, Everywhere in Denmark is the country side
(unless you live in Copenhagen, which is the asshole full of smaller snoppy assholes of Denmark..)

It's better out here, but you really have to go out of the atmosphere or 10-20 miles out to sea to get those kinds of stars. American speaking, btw, so maybe different somewhere else with less development.

I have done in the past but ive never seen the sky as clear as these pictures, thats what i would love to see
User avatar #6 to #5 - bematli (10/16/2013) [-]
Actually those are all Photoshopped pictures of artist's representations of how the sky would look without pollution.
User avatar #114 to #3 - ninjacowboy (10/17/2013) [-]
Pictures like these are usually taken out in areas like Death Valley, several miles away from even the closest street lamp. In Denmark, i would recommend either try heading out to sea, or (assuming you dont have a boat to just hop in and leave) drive out to farmland away from any cities and you can get a pretty good view although not as vibrant.

I don't think so. I live in a rural area with minimal light pollution, and I've never seen an skies close to that. granted, I've seen some ******* fantastic night skies, but not of that caliber.
User avatar #17 to #3 - mcmanybucks (10/17/2013) [-]
Ude ved himmelbjerget, faktisk.. det er en mega tyk skov, hvis du nogensinde har været der..næsten ingen unaturlige lys..
User avatar #13 to #3 - Jewssassin (10/17/2013) [-]
I dont know much about European Geography, but as a good guess I'd say 200 miles away from any city, and not just major ones. That should be more then enough.
User avatar #16 to #13 - mcmanybucks (10/17/2013) [-]
denmark only has one 200milestone..if cross that ur nearly in germany..lol
#10 to #3 - Womens Study Major (10/16/2013) [-]
from what i've heard that in the sahara desert it looks alot like that,

I'd love just one day in the year they would turn off all the lights just so we can look at the night sky

Living in a world of darkness....worried about crime?

if youre innocent...youre safe....if youre a criminal...you'll be in a dumpster pretty quick
User avatar #45 - wumbido (10/17/2013) [-]
nobody cares about Brampton
#51 to #45 - bronydash (10/17/2013) [-]
or Mississauga :/
User avatar #57 to #51 - BlackBerru (10/17/2013) [-]
**** YEAH CANADIANS sorry for yelling
User avatar #55 to #51 - Crusader (10/17/2013) [-]
Mississauga is the only city I got physically aggressive while driving around, purely because of all the poorly labeled streets
User avatar #8 - howunexpected (10/16/2013) [-]
A world without light pollution...
is a world without light.
I think I'll take the lack of stars if it means I won't fall down the ******* stairs at 10:30
User avatar #56 to #8 - Crusader (10/17/2013) [-]

i remember when i was moving states, my dad was driving in the middle of nowhere and all i could see were the stars like ive never seen before, it was awe inspiring
#111 - FightClub (10/17/2013) [-]
"light pollution"

visible stars =/= beneficial to communities

******* hippy
#157 - Jameshaich (10/17/2013) [-]
Yeah lets turn off all light and live in darkness, who cares if you can't see well or can't drive or can't do anything. The sky will be pretty.
User avatar #155 - niggernazi (10/17/2013) [-]
yeah because i would feel totally safe walking on a street with no lights and a lot of *******
User avatar #154 - ireallylikepotatoe ONLINE (10/17/2013) [-]
I often fantasize about turning all the lights off for just a couple of seconds.

If only it wouldn't cause so many deaths.
#147 - peggscott (10/17/2013) [-]
People going on about crime and how dangerous it would be. Well apparently crime rates do fall. Given, it was only tried in a small town, but they turned the street lights of every night for a period of time to see how much money they could save and it turned out that the crime rate actually dropped. They think the reason for this is because an attacker likes to see who they are attacking. They don't want to try and mug someone only to find out they are twice the size of them and 4 times as strong...
User avatar #149 to #147 - annoos (10/17/2013) [-]
Doesn't really matter if he has a gun... isn't a matter of strength anymore.
User avatar #150 to #149 - peggscott (10/17/2013) [-]
True, and I should probably add that this was done somewhere in Britain where guns are, to a certain extent, more controlled.

But I guess it could also be said that the person they are attacking could also have a gun? especially in states with concealed carry permits. It's the same kind of risk...
User avatar #151 to #150 - annoos (10/17/2013) [-]
Things can go in many ways.. you can't actually tell whether the rates will go up and down unless you "Experiment" since there are many variables, the results will also change from place to place... so its pretty useless to discuss this matter. i just like the idea of turning off the lights for like... 10 minutes aday maybe? that would be awesome!
User avatar #152 to #151 - peggscott (10/17/2013) [-]
I know, I just seen all the comments about crime rates going through the roof if this was to happen and I remembered reading about the town that turned the lights off and how the crime rates went down.
And if you got even further into it you would probably find that crimes considered more 'risky' would drop, like mugging people. But the more 'easy' crimes, like criminal damage (smashing windows, setting fires...) would rise.

Still, it was pretty good to have a discussion with someone on the internet without it turning into an argument and getting told to go suck more dicks...
User avatar #145 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/17/2013) [-]
no I like my light pollution.
#144 - FatherPedobear (10/17/2013) [-]
No.
User avatar #129 - slapchoppin (10/17/2013) [-]
yeah and walking down the streets without being able to see anything would be fantastic
User avatar #140 to #129 - trollmobile ONLINE (10/17/2013) [-]
actually, when there isn't light pollution, you can see pretty clearly on starlit nights.
the reason you can't see **** without lights in the city, is because of all the light pollution around you, making you have to have even more lights.

theres a place out in the mountains were we can see the sky almost like this, id say a good 3/4. whenever me and my friends go to the casino we stop out in the fields and look at the sky. its ******* crazy beautiful
#137 - ddrwannabe (10/17/2013) [-]
I would rather just get rid of the bulk of the people in those cites. Cut off about a billion people right there.
User avatar #136 - aldheim (10/17/2013) [-]
All I can think about is how utterly dead those cities look.
It all just looks wrong.
#135 - Womens Study Major (10/17/2013) [-]
the funny thing is, this picture was taken by a camera with flash..
User avatar #132 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, let's turn all our lights off so we can look at pwetty stars. I'm sure that'll help with the crime problems too.
User avatar #127 - psykobear (10/17/2013) [-]
Um... no?
Clouds exist... as does air pollution, or smog... and the atmosphere...
Also, many of the stars and galaxies we know of can only be seen with a telescope.
I kinda feel that someone got a little crazy with cropping and forgot about, well, science.
