The Milky Way is a beautiful place. However, it is not always easy to see it from Earth. In fact, the atmosphere scatters the Sun’s light, which blocks our view of the universe for most of the day. Light pollution is not the only factor at play: the composition of the air is another big factor. Too much water vapor or fine particles can make it harder to see through. However, under the right conditions, the beauties of space appear before our eyes. So next time you go for a walk at night, look at the sky!
