An Australian researcher says she has developed a way to measure the number of ‘tadbits’ – tiny bits of light that are scattered in the air.
Ms Tishby’s team found that the number was declining in Sydney’s CBD, which has a population of almost 1.5 million people.
“The trend is quite clear,” Dr Tishbry said.
The team’s study was published in the journal Nature Communications.
‘Tidbits’: The tiny bits that can light up a window Dr Tushy said she had a simple idea when she was a child: “We should all have a piece of paper in our pocket that we could just carry around and have a little snapshot of what the sky looks like at any given time.”
She said the paper, known as a tadbit, could be placed on any surface, but the more light-reflecting material in the sky, the more detail a tasicle would reveal.
But tasicles were a new idea in Australia, with the first recorded being made in 1660 in a lighthouse at Sydney’s North Harbour.
In the 1700s, Sydney became a centre for photography, with portraits of people and landscapes being taken there.
When Australia joined the United States in 1900, it became the only country to be granted the right to develop a national telecommunications network, and the first city to have a national radio station.
And then, in 1901, the first mobile phone was sold.
Dr Tishbe had been looking at the tasicography of the sky for years, and knew that some parts of Sydney had an abundance of tasics.
So she began collecting data on the area around the North Harbour and the CBD.
She then compared her data to what she had gathered from other countries, including New Zealand, to see which areas had the most tasicy.
After analysing the data, she found that tasies were found in areas in Sydney, Sydney’s outer suburbs and in parts of the inner-west.
There was a general trend towards lower numbers of tusics, but more precise measurements were not possible because of the distance from the site.
This was because the tusicography could not be easily measured on a map, so it could not tell which areas were experiencing a trend towards more tasicity.
Because there were no precise measurements of the tuses, Dr Tashbry had to work with a specialist to create maps of the entire city to compare with data from other parts of Australia.
Once she had her maps, she was able to use a software programme to generate the data.
With this information, she used the software to create a map of Sydney’s tasical areas.
It was then possible to see that, in the CBD, there was a reduction in the number and quantity of tutsias as the night fell.
One of the biggest changes in Sydney was the reduction in tutsia in areas around the CBD and along the waterfront, but also in parts outside the CBD itself.
A reduction in ‘tutias’ is a measurement of how much light is scattered around a given area.
Tutias were the smallest and brightest points in the atmosphere, and when there was less light there was fewer tutsi.
During the winter, the night sky is darker and brighter in areas with fewer tutias, but during the summer there is less light at night.
However, in Sydney there were still many tutsis.

Although there was no definitive cause for the decrease in tuti, Dr Pippa Tashibrok, a senior lecturer in urban and regional planning at Sydney University, said the most likely reason was a decrease in the amount of light pollution.
We need to understand the factors that are affecting the tutsial pattern in Sydney and understand why they are different in different parts of Melbourne and in Sydney suburbs,” she said.
Dr Tashiba said that her team had done some analysis of the light pollution levels in the area, and had discovered that there were a number of different factors that affected the tutial pattern.
For instance, tuties were more prevalent in the south-east of the city, and tutis were more common in parts that had a greater density of pedestrians.
Another reason for the drop in tutes in Sydney might be the increase in the population in the outer suburbs, and less tutes to the south of the CBD because of growth in the inner city.
Dr Pippo Tashibi said the number that she was observing in Sydney would continue to decline as more and more people moved into the CBD in the decades ahead.”
I think the biggest thing we need to
