Marc Huertas-Company, Faculty at the París 7 University and Paris Meudon Observatory, visited this week our university.
Jaime Zamorano Calvo, GUAIX astronomer and Víctor Manuel Muñoz Marín, student of the International School for Advanced Instrumentation (IScAI) had produced a new report about the Calibration of SQM-L photometers for the NixNox project. These photometers will be used by amateur astronomers around Spain to locate and characterize sites with dark skies well suited to perform astronomical observations.
The Light Pollution Research Group of the Departamento de Astrofísica y CC. de la Atmósfera de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid stated that Spain has the streets more illuminated in the EU. Therefore Spain is the country with more light pollution as shown by images taken from the space by satellites, and by the data from a report asked by the European Commission, as its has been published by these groups of researchers.
