For his research, Matt visited places such as King’s Forest in West Stow and Lackford Lakes, taking long walks after nightfall.

Matt explores topics such as darkness, why we fear night, light pollution and how it is a hidden factor in the current environmental emergency – damaging wildlife.

He also looks at where to find places unaffected by light pollution.

He is hosting a launch event at Waterstones in the arc shopping centre on February 20 at 7pm, where the book will be available to purchase.
