About ALPS

ALPS (All-sky Light Pollution Survey) project aims to monitor light pollution by recording images and measuring the brightness of the night sky. These observations are made using automatic stations located in places with extremely different levels of light pollution. Such a choice of location shows how much light pollution affects the appearance of the night sky.
