Dear John

Back in February, we asked you to help us map the nation’s view of the night
sky. An incredible 2,500 people took part, and the results are now in.

61% of people saw 10 stars or fewer, indicating severe light pollution, and just
3% live in an area with truly dark skies.

We’ve created an interactive map of everyone’s star counts that shows where the
starriest skies were found and where people’s view of the stars is most affected
by light pollution.

How does your area compare? You can find out by exploring the map at the link
below. Be sure to zoom in to find your very own star count result!

But the government is still planning to spend £27 billion on new roads, with
some of them driving right through protected landscapes.

We’re calling on the government to scrap these plans immediately and divert that
money to areas that improve people’s lives, rather than pollute them.
