Many towers have decorative lighting here, is just that they don't turn them on after a while

The tower looks like it's going to fall over from some angles! But it's still nice nonetheless.

The constant humidity and sand/dust in the air, makes that impossible anyway .... plus, it's a freaking 24h city, not a rural village retreat

Well, I can deduce you have never done any kind of photography (pub/club crawling doesn't count)

So they don't have any astronomers in Dubai then? Or anywhere else on the Arabian peninsula for that matter? I somehow doubt that.
The point is we all like tall buildings, but there are ways to keep light pollution to reasonable levels. Lighting up tall buildings like ******* christmas trees at night ain't one of them.

as if people living in dubai marina didn't come for the vibrant night life. If they wanted endless darkness and calm desert skies, they wouldn't come to the marina.

the arabian peninsula is 99% deserted darkness at night. this is one of the reasons why lighting up those handful of square kilometers with skyscrapers makes total sense.

it makes the skyline a special place. darkness is everywhere else.

What about the people who lived there before Dubai became quite so commercialised? Did they get asked? Didn't think so.
Yes the skyline is spectacular, but that comes at great cost to any people there who enjoy stargazing.
Total sense....no. Total uncaring ignorance....yes.

You must be living in some distant small rural community. Maybe you even hunt your own food ...... if building that community there didn't kicked the beasts away, that is.


Pffff, some people will alwayes find something to trash, and act acordinly .... perhaps compensating for things lacking in own life.

One of the few towers in Dubai I actually like. All have insane height but not many are aesthetically pleasing like this one and Burj Khalifa IMO. This one is really good and the lighting will be amazing.

where the skyscrapers light up the sky now there were virtually no residential units before. there marina never existed without vibrant skyscrapers. only a few starglazing camels had to move and now continue star gazing in the remaining 99% desert.

the few stargazers wil have plenty of opportunities to look at the stars in the desert.

What about the people who lived there before New York, Tokyo, Paris, Frankfurt, or Las Vegas became quite so commercialised? Did they get asked? Didn't think so. Do they complain?

As if he really gives a [email protected] about stargazers .... it's just something new he found to spew poison. We have been seeing these types for almost a decade now, so we pretty much know right away where it all comes from.

"Did they get asked? Didn't think so. Do they complain? "

I don't know about other countries, but in the UK we have the "campaign for dark skies" which is a movement to try to limit the amount of unnecessary light pollution. The main aims of which are to make people aware of the problem and to encourage the introduction of more sympathetic street lighting, with plenty of good results.I expect other countries will have similar organisations.

The reason I come onto this forum is because I have an interest in tall buildings, I also have an interest in astronomy.
You seem to take it personally whenever anyone doesn't agree wholeheartedly with you on any particular subject.
Classic trait of an idiot.

Your statemnts are irational and based on nothing, you dont live in Dubai, you have no facts and no experience, actually i think you have never been to Dubai, otherwise, you wouldnt so generalise and stereotypise the life here like this. I think you should leave, at least this thread.
