There are a heap of possible backlinks for 'night sky' suggested over here if anyone wants to check and fill them in. I've only had time to do the first few. They were generated back when this page was an alias for 'amateur astronomy'. Izogi 21:38, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit]

This article could cover:

  • The duration of the night sky by latitude and season.
  • The locations of the globe that have the clearest visibility at night. E.g. Dome C.[1]
  • Night airglow radiation.
  • Contribution of various sources to night sky illumination.[2]
  • Olber's paradox.
  • Night sky on the moon and other planets.
  • Thermal loss.

Naked eye planets[edit]

although it is very faint and hardly reconizable, uranus can be seen from the naked eye in very clear skies — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.26.122.181 (talk) 02:04, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Merge into Sky[edit]

As neither of these articles is particularly long, and the two are obviously related, it would be easy to merge them. This would also make it easier to address events like eclipses, comets or supernovae, as they have strong astronomical ties, but don't belong exclusively in the "night sky".Forbes72 (talk) 23:07, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Consensus was to keep the articles separate. (see "Sky" talk page)Forbes72 (talk) 17:29, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
