Light pollution and air pollution effect astronomy by making it more difficult to view the stars. If you notice, when you get out of the cities where there is less air and light pollution, you are better able to view the stars.
A light year is the distance that light can travel in a year.
In astronomy, the amount of light reflected by the Moon - or by any other object - is called "albedo", which literally means "whiteness".In astronomy, the amount of light reflected by the Moon - or by any other object - is called "albedo", which literally means "whiteness".In astronomy, the amount of light reflected by the Moon - or by any other object - is called "albedo", which literally means "whiteness".In astronomy, the amount of light reflected by the Moon - or by any other object - is called "albedo", which literally means "whiteness".
A light year is a unit of length used in Astronomy to define distance. One light year is equal to just under 6 trillion miles.
CCDs, or Charge-Coupled Devices, are the light sensor chips used in all digital cameras. The application to astronomy, especially to space telescopes and space probes, is obvious.
You could simply say 'the percentage of incident light which is not absorbed by the surface'. The technical term, used mainly in astronomy, is albedo.
Light pollution promotes stress, fatigue, sleeplessness, and mental problems. Recent studies have shown that light pollution promotes erectile disfunction.
Yes. There is no atmosphere there, so the sky would be clearer. There would be no light pollution which would also help. The study of the Moon itself is part of astronomy, so that could be done. It would also be good for studying the Earth, which would be helpful for astronomy. For these and many other reasons, the Moon would be a good place to do astronomy.
Stars are the sources of light. If they did not emit light, there would be no stars and thus no astronomy.

Studying light is one part of astronomy. Things like the speed of light, how it travels, the spectrum of light are all things that are used in studying astronomy. Studying light emitted from a star can tell us all sorts of things about it, like how far away it is and how bright it really is.
Light pollution is not a crime yet, but buildings should atempt to reduce it. Light pollution is still a crime against the environment.
Light pollution does not affect astronauts, it affects astronomers.
Light pollution is generally not life-threatening, but it can easily disrupt a person's sleep cycle if unnecessary light always enter one's house. As far as I am concerned, lack of sleep doesn't cause death but light pollution is a nuisance for drivers in large cities because some lights are so bright that the driver could get "dazzled" by the light - which in tuen can lead to a fatal accident, so in that sense, people CAN die from light pollution.
Limited observations because of the light pollution. Can you see that there are actually two stars very close together in the center of the handle of the big dipper?
Some FALSE facts on light pollution are: 1. Astronomers benefit from light pollution as it helps them to study stars. 2. All stars are visible in the night sky when viewed from a light polluted city. 3. Light pollution is good for the environment. 4. Light pollution doesn't affect human sleep cycles.
Yes. Light pollution is when ANY KIND OF LIGHT disrupts people, or disrupts the eco-system.
