I am Alejandro Sánchez de Miguel, father and astrophysicist.
My passion for astronomy began at a very young age, and my vocation for defending the dark sky continues with the different projects that I have led.
My experience in night images has been useful in scientific advice for governments, such as the publication of the Light Pollution Ranking of Spain 2015 that has been used by the Audit of the Court of Accounts of Valencia, the energy statistics in public lighting of Spain was used by the Spanish government to establish new lighting policies in Spain.
I currently maintain a relationship with different ministries such as Chile and the Czech Republic I am an honorary member of the ASAAF UCM, member of the board of directors of the International Dark Sky Association and advisor to the sky quality office of the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia.
I invite you to know about my work and the progress we are making to protect biodiversity from light pollution.
