New dawn or new dusk? Beyond the binary of day and night

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In the first week of April 2011 The International Dark-Sky Association celebrated

    International Dark Sky Week, an annual event raising awareness of how artificial

    lighting is rapidly destroying the dark sky at night. In the same week, in post-tsunami

    Japan, debate emerged about whether to introduce unusual daylight-savings regula-

    tions and force companies to shift operating hours for workers to relieve the stress

    on the country's crippled power plants.
