Skyglow

Skyglow is the brightening of the night sky over inhabited areas, which reduces the contrast of stars or other celestial objects against the dark sky background. Some stars will blend into the background and become indistinguishable. 

A cold and crisp winters night as the Milky Way rises high above the glow of the capital city, Wellington in New Zealand.
