  Title Islamic University of Gaza Students’ Opinions on the Light Pollution Effects on Human Type Journal Article
  Year 2019 Publication European Journal of Physics Education Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 10 Issue 4 Pages 42-54  
  Keywords Education  
  Abstract Light pollution is nowadays well known all over the world and may negatively cause disturbance to human and have diverse effects. This study aims to identify the views and opinions of the Islamic University of Gaza students on light pollution and then to create awareness among them about the risky problem facing rapidly our society. The study is based on the survey questions and semi-structured interviews and then the data is collected from the survey questions and semi-structured interviews were qualitatively analyzed and quotes from the students' statements were included. Most of the students recognized that excessive lighting can adversely affect a person's health. The results also show that 40.0% of the students feel that the area outside of their residence is at night is “Fair Brightness “, 29.2% “Bright as day “, 13.8% “Pitch Black “, and 16.9% “A Little Black “. 90.8% of the sample are familiar with light pollution, but 9.2% is not. Some suggestions and recommendations will be made for controlling and reducing light pollution to have a healthy society.

  Title The 1997 reference of diffuse night sky brightness Type Journal Article
  Year 1998 Publication Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series Abbreviated Journal Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser.  
  Volume 127 Issue 1 Pages 1-99  
  Keywords Skyglow; darkness; Sky brightness  
  Abstract In the following we present material in tabular and graphical form, with the aim to allow the non-specialist to obtain a realistic estimate of the diffuse night sky brightness over a wide range of wavelengths from the far UV longward of Lyalpha to the far-infrared. At the same time the data are to provide a reference for cases in which background brightness has to be discussed, including the planning for space observations and the issue of protection of observatory sites. We try to give a critical presentation of the status at the beginning of 1997. Prepared by members of Commission 21 ``Light of the night sky'' of the IAU, including most of the recent (vice-)presidents.

  Title Characterizing the zenithal night sky brightness in large territories: how many samples per square kilometre are needed? Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 473 Issue 3 Pages 4164-4173  
  Keywords Instrumentation; atmospheric effects; light pollution; numerical methods; photometry  
  Abstract A recurring question arises when trying to characterize, by means of measurements or theoretical calculations, the zenithal night sky brightness throughout a large territory: how many samples per square kilometre are needed? The optimum sampling distance should allow reconstructing, with sufficient accuracy, the continuous zenithal brightness map across the whole region, whilst at the same time avoiding unnecessary and redundant oversampling. This paper attempts to provide some tentative answers to this issue, using two complementary tools: the luminance structure function and the Nyquist–Shannon spatial sampling theorem. The analysis of several regions of the world, based on the data from the New world atlas of artificial night sky brightness, suggests that, as a rule of thumb, about one measurement per square kilometre could be sufficient for determining the zenithal night sky brightness of artificial origin at any point in a region to within ±0.1 magV arcsec–2 (in the root-mean-square sense) of its true value in the Johnson–Cousins V band. The exact reconstruction of the zenithal night sky brightness maps from samples taken at the Nyquist rate seems to be considerably more demanding.
