Nah, I don't give two ***** about it. I already have that in Croatia. Nobody ******* cares. Just go to the god damn desert or abandoned area (mountains, woods...) and gaze all you want. It gets boring after 2 minutes and then you never do it again. I have clear night sky every day in my life, I don't think I've looked up at night for at least past 10 years. Pretty stars can go **** themselves.

I live in sydney, pretty close to the city and you can barely make out a few bright stars even on a clear night, but I remember when I was younger we went out to the countryside and I went outside midnight I was literally terrified by the clear sight of millions of stars and formations, so beautiful and creepy

The cityscape is too bright, it would be much darker than that.
Go to a remote forest and find out just how dark it gets, despite all the stars.
The high buildings in those cities will have a similar effect on ground level.

And all the people talking about crime rates, funny how that works in places where there isn't many lights in night time. Crime rates are lower but that may be because people are less mentally ****** in those places as well.

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.

I often fantasize about turning all the lights off for just a couple of seconds.

If only it wouldn't cause so many deaths.

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.

Light travels pretty ******* far. You have to get HELLA FAR from anything before you can start to see it.

But once you do, its absolutely amazing. I remember sitting on a dock of a lake, and the water reflecting the stars and the milkyway perfectly. Words can not describe.
(I live in the Northwest USA, hardest part here is finding a clear night without clouds)

It might be more accurate to say "if your country went dark" but it really does look like that if you can get away from all of the light pollution.

there are only a couple spots on the planet left that have no light pollution, it is basically everywhere to at least a small degree...

Well you'd also have to get rid of pollution in general. And clouds.

Or, you know, you can just get to the mountain side... or any somewhat-remote natural area and wait for the night

It's not really the city lights that blocks out the stars' light, but the heavy polluted air

As beautiful as space and the night sky can be, it was a necessary sacrifice.

Light pollution extends REALLY far. Like the only country without any light pollution to any considerable degree is a country in Africa, but I can't remember its name.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
