A bright glow of upward-shining light has been visible in the night-time view of the Western horizon from my bedroom window. It only appeared in the last few days – the difference is quite noticable. I am completely puzzled as to what’s causing it – but by my reckoning – it’s probably situated in the Harrow town centre area – which is about 5 kilometres away. There’s no major football stadium around there – and it can’t be the shopping mall as that is a few clicks to the right and doesn’t light up anything like that.
If my imagination were to get carried away with itself I would say that aliens have landed in North West London:
(As seen from my bedroom window through the twigs of the big tree in the foreground.)
Not protesting or anything, but I do feel that it’s a real shame that this has ocurred, as it just adds even more light to the overly-light-polluted skies of London. No wonder only the brightest handful of stars are visible in the night sky around here.
