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 would rather just get rid of the bulk of the people in those cites. Cut off about a billion people right there.

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.

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.

I see many people arguing that seeing this kind of sky is impossible, or it's just a camera with long exposure.
Both of these are untrue, you can see this sky but not everyday, there are better days than others when you can see the galaxy and not at any time since the moon is also a light source in the night sky it will make your eyes adjust to a higher light level. The eyes need atleast 15-20 minutes to readjust their "night vision". So if you want to see this kind of sky you shouldn't have any light source in your field of view.There are instructions if you look them up when it's best to view the milky way.

This is clearly not a long exposure picture because that would make the stars into lines since the earth is moving and even a little longer exposure would smudge the sky.

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

It would really nice but unfortunately with all the electricity and pollution it's pretty much not possible. Maybe someday in the far future where cities have force field/purifiers that protect/keep the city clean and safe.

Assuming we don't just end up like Dues Ex

I've seen the sky like this in the content. At a family reunion in Maryland, the house we were at is in the middle of no where, and you see almost exactly what the content describes.

It makes you realize how vast the Galaxy really is in comparison to the very small corner we inhabit. It makes you rethink life and everything you know seeing the vast night sky. If you get a chance to see it, take it. Take it and never regret it.

Well I don't need to see it to know that much. But for me it's not so much a source of wonder as it is despair.

With the exceptions of the differences between the northern and southern hemispheres, should all the skies look essentially the same other than a slight shift in point of view?

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.
