The night sky is going to get much busier thanks to thousands of new internet satellites set to launch over the next few years—and researchers say it's going to affect Canada more than most places on Earth.

 

Researchers from the University of Toronto, the University of Regina and the University of British Columbia found that most light pollution is expected to happen near 50 degrees latitude north and south due to the orbits of the new satellites.

They have to be? I think you underestimate how seriously many people take light pollution.

I view through my various scopes every clear, dark nite, I know what I see and don't see every clear , dark night at 46°+ latitude  I am from Canada, a concerned Canadian citizen, I know the story, I know the .......  I think I have a right more than .......... to tell ........  The sky isn't about to fall, the skies at 50°+ are not about to lose their ........ because of small, minute, pinpricks of lite than has already been lost to ......  I stand by what I said !
