Half of the UK’s population cannot see many stars because the night skies are still “saturated” with light pollution, campaigners have warned.Some 53% of those who joined a recent star count failed to see more than 10 stars in the Orion constellation.

Snow blanketed most of Great Britain in late January 2013, stretching from London to the northern tip of Scotland. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on January 26, 2013. Only some coastal areas and the southwestern part of the island were free of snow when MODIS took this picture. Skies had mostly cleared by the time MODIS acquired the image, but some clouds lingered in the west, casting shadows onto the snowy surface below.
