Eyes on the Sky is in a transition period. Since November of 2011, a weekly video has been made to highlight one or more things visible in the night sky that week. The goal was always to highlight light pollution, and help others make changes to reduce light pollution. But as I've learned more about it, I've realized that more needs to be done.
However, given the time involved in making the weekly videos, I couldn't do both. So at the moment, there are a lot of things happening "behind the scenes" with Eyes on the Sky to get some new things set up. In the future, there will be ~70 or so objects that any observer will be able to find from most anywhere on Earth (except the very worst light polluted areas, like Broadway or downtown Hong Kong). There is a lot of website writing and setting up to do with that. There are also a lot of scripts to write for the videos that will accompany those pages. I'm in the process of doing that.
And as for light pollution, each of these videos will feature information...
