A gas well flare lights up an evening sky. These gas flares dot our landscape in increasing numbers.. and are one of the most noticeable changes I have witnessed in our ever changing world. It has become increasingly difficult to view a pristine night sky in areas previously unaffected by light pollution..

    Such a beautiful photo and so true that more and more things are coming along that mess up a wonderful night scene. We can barely see the stars anymore and that is a shame!!!
