Why are stars not visible from many cities?

    When stars are not visible due to cities, it is considered light pollution. According to National Geographic, light pollution “is  largely the result of bad lighting design, which allows artificial light to shine outward and upward into the sky, where it’s not wanted, instead of focusing it downward, where it is.” Light from cities is so bright that stars disappear behind the glow that is given off, and makes stars invisible.
