OUR FIFTEEN YEARS  IN THE GLOBE AT NIGHT PROGRAM
Globe at Night is an international campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. We will process our data for the constellation Orion (15. years), in order to get an answer to the research question: Is light pollution in the Labin region decreasing? The results show that the Labin region is moderately polluted with. In the last five years, there has been an increase in light pollution and a possible reason for this is the "explosion" of construction of tourist facilities especially in rural areas, and thus increasing the number of illuminated access roads. Comparing our results with the available maps, we are happy that the sky over the Labin region is mostly "good sky", although there are "black spots" that need to be thought about and do everything to improve. By regularly reporting to the local authorities, we believe that we are also a small "wheel" in the changes, so we will continue to work actively in this program. Finally, Croatia, as a popular European tourist destination, apart from the sea and the sun, could offer visitors a unique starry night sky and preserve it as a natural heritage.
