Indians see the Himalayas for the first time

Recommended Posts

"People in the northern Indian state of Punjab are reacting with awe at the sight of the Himalayan mountain range, which is now visible from more than 100 miles away due to the reduction in air pollution caused by the country's coronavirus lockdown.

"Indians in the city of Jalandhar and the surrounding area have posted photos online of the views from their homes, with some saying they haven't seen the peaks of the Himalayas for decades.

""For the first time in almost 30 years (I) could clearly see the Himalayas due to India's lockdown clearing air pollution. Just amazing," Manjit Kang wrote."

What? Stars? I see them on TV every day.

Wait, you mean those glowy gassy things at night? It's been awhile since I've seen them. I thought they all fizzled out. I might need to go outside & look up tonight.

I don't doubt that the visibility is better now than before, but we would need a before and after picture. The pictures featured here are clearly from the countryside where there could have been visibility before too.
