  Title Mount Wilson Observatory: The Sad Story of Light Pollution Type Journal Article
  Year 2004 Publication The Observatory Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 124 Issue Pages 14-21  
  Keywords Skyglow  
  Abstract The brightness of night sky at the Mount Wilson Observatory has been calculated for the years from 1900 to 2000. Data on the street lighting in Los Angeles City and estimates for light from residences, shops, and businesses have been used to calculate the per capita light-emission rates. These have been used in model brightness calculations with the populations of many cities in the Los Angeles Basin. The results show the relentless increase in night-sky brightness that is continuing at this time.
