About the Author and Webmaster
The webmaster, a Singapoream teenage student, has always been deeply interested in Astronomy. The inspiration for this web site was derived from the fact that Singapore's night sky, brightly lit by lights, has been opaque to all light from the heavens but that from the brightest stars and planets.
The information found on this web site has been vetted and rewritten countless times to ensure accuracy; the information was from the author's school project, a research paper on light pollution. While all effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information, the views expressed are those of the author. All references can be found under "Resources", where the bibIiography is.
The author's sincere hope and belief is that with proper guidelines and the support of all people in Singapore, light pollution can be reduced to a large extent. Light pollution could possibly deprive future generations of a beautiful night sky, which had for many years decades ago, served as a catalyst for budding scientists to explore the wonders of the universe.
This year is also especially significant. Being Einstein's Year and the UNESCO endorsed International Year of Physics, Singaporeans from all walks of life can have one aim: to reduce light pollution by as much as possible in their neighbourhood. For example, if the limiting magnitude of your estate is magnitude 1.5, then attempt to increase it to 2.5. The ultimate aim is to reduce light pollution to the degree that the Milky Way can be seen from the suburban estates.
Thus, here's wishing you all the best in your quest for dark skies. Should you have any queries, please feel free to email the author.
