Title City Sky Glow Monitoring at Kitt Peak. Type Journal Article
Year 1973 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal
Volume 85 Issue 507 Pages 503-507
Keywords (down) Skyglow
Abstract Photographs of night sky have been taken from Kitt Peak on clear moonless nights to provide a record of changes in contamination from artificial lights. Quantitative measures confirm the obvious qualitative impression that city sky-glow brightness is increasing as is the case at most existing observatory sites.

Title Light Pollution: Outdoor lighting is a growing threat to astronomy Type Journal Article
Year 1973 Publication Science (New York, N.Y.) Abbreviated Journal Science
Volume 179 Issue 4080 Pages 1285-1291
Keywords (down) Skyglow
Abstract There have been major qualitative and quantitative changes in outdoor lighting technology in the last decade. The level of skylight caused by outdoor lighting systems is growing at a very high rate, about 20 percent per year nationwide. In addition, the spectral distribution of man-made light pollution may change in the next decade from one containing a few mercury lines to one containing dozens of lines and a significantly increased continuum level. Light pollution is presently damaging to some astronomical programs, and it is likely to become a major factor limiting progress in the next decade. Suitable sites in the United States for new dark sky observing facilities are very difficult to find. Some of the increase in outdoor illumination is due to the character of national growth and development. Some is due to promotional campaigns, in which questionable arguments involving public safety are presented. There are protective measures which might be adopted by the government; these would significantly aid observational astronomy, without compromising the legitimate outdoor lighting needs of society. Observatories should establish programs to routinely monitor sky brightness as a function of position, wavelength, and time. The astronomical community should establish a mechanism by which such programs can be supported and coordinated.

Title Light Pollution in California and Arizona. Type Journal Article
Year 1973 Publication Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Abbreviated Journal
Volume 85 Issue 507 Pages 508-519
Keywords (down) Skyglow
Abstract The present and future effect of artificial illumination on ground-based optical astronomical observations in California and Arizona is discussed. It is concluded that the effectiveness of all major observatories in these states is presently or potentially limited by light pollution. Consequently, it is essential that immediate efforts be undertaken to: (1) Control outdoor illumination to lengthen the useful life of existing observatory sites, and (2) Identify and protect the best remaining sites both within and outside the United States. The characteristics and probable locations of the best sites for ground-based optical astronomical observations are discussed.
