The skyglow produced by artificial lights at night is one of the most dramatic anthropogenic modificationsof Earth’s biosphere. The GLOBE at Night citizen science project allows individual observers to quantifyskyglow using star maps showing different levels of light pollution. We show that aggregated GLOBE atNight data depend strongly on artificial skyglow, and could be used to track lighting changes worldwide.Naked eye time series can be expected to be very stable, due to the slow pace…
