Shine like a star.

These days it is almost impossible to witness a shining star. Air pollution these days is in an uncontrollable level and all i see is a dust forming a hundred kilometers above us and we cant see even one city. Smoke and poisonous gases from vehicles and other industries have made it literally impossible to witness a star in the sky. It is only possible to see a few of them in the country side as there is very less pollution when compared to in major cities.

I love watching stars in the sky but it's been a long time since I saw them.

and you know the reason, because they are no stars to watch anymore and this is very sad.

Stars are still shining over the clouds. lol. Sadly it's been a long while since I've seen them it's not because they are not there anymore but because of busyness, little, I go outside during the night nowadays.

yea, they are there but due to air pollution they are not visible and we are responsible for it.

@SiddharthV I am not out early in the morning to test your theory of stars in the sky.

@SiddharthV I stay inside a lot these days because of our crazy weather and not feeling well.

It is not only air pollution that keeps us from seeing the stars, but the amount of light put out by the cities. I live in a place where the street lights cannot be close together and cannot be above a certain brightness. That makes for a beautiful night sky.

Maybe that is one of the factor, but air pollution is a terrible phenomenon that is creating this scenario.
