18U008   Dark Sky Conservation

Light pollution is a form of environmental degradation affecting the natural environment and the ecosystem. Light pollution not only rids us of the starry night sky, but also indicates a waste of electric energy and damages the nature and our living environment. The Department of Physics, HKU has been conducting light pollution research for over a decade. This exhibition introduces light pollution, dark sky conservation, researches of the HKU, tips on reducing light pollution, etc. There is a demonstration on the use of light sensors for measuring light pollution. The best entries collected in the “Be a responsible stargazer • Enjoy the meteor shower” Campaign are exhibited. The exhibition is supported by the Knowledge Exchange Fund of HKU.
