  Title Sky glow and outdoor lighting trends since 1976 at the Lowell Observatory Type Journal Article
  Year 1990 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal PASP  
  Volume 102 Issue Pages 481  
  Keywords Skyglow; Lighting  
  Abstract Urban sky-glow (light pollution) trends, recorded photoelectrically in intermediate-band b (472 nm) and y (551 nm) filters at the original site of the Lowell Observatory on Mars Hill near downtown Flagstaff, Arizona, reflect not just the population growth of the surrounding city but also some ameliorating effects of lighting controls and a changing mix of outdoor lighting sources. Since 1976 the sky brightness increased in b but has been virtually constant in y. New ordinances limit lighting growth near observatories and require monochromatic low-pressure sodium luminaires for most applications.
