From National Geographic:
Look up at the moon on June 20, and you may be witnessing something that has not been seen in decades. That night, depending on your local time zone, the full moon will rise on the same day as the June solstice for the first time since 1948.

According to a study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, approximately 80% of those in North America live in ares where the Milky Way is no longer visible.
 
From ScienceAdvances.com:
We found that about 83% of the world’s population and more than 99% of the U.S. and European populations live under light-polluted skies (that is, where artificial sky brightness at the zenith is >14 µcd/m2). Due to light pollution, the Milky Way is not visible to more than one-third of humanity, including 60% of Europeans and nearly 80% of North Americans. Moreover, 23% of the world’s land surfaces between 75°N and 60°S, 88% of Europe, and almost half of the United States experience light-polluted nights.
 
The countries with the populations least affected by light pollution are Chad, Central African Republic, and Madagascar, with more than three-quarters of their inhabitants living under pristine sky conditions. The countries and territories with the largest nonpolluted areas are Greenland (only 0.12% of its area does not have pristine skies), Central African Republic (0.29%), Niue (0.45%), Somalia (1.2%), and Mauritania (1.4%).
 
On the other side, the most light-polluted country is Singapore, where the entire population lives under skies so bright that the eye cannot fully dark-adapt to night vision. Other populations experiencing this level of light pollution are Kuwait (98%), Qatar (97%), United Arab Emirates (93%), Saudi Arabia (83%), South Korea (66%), Israel (61%), Argentina (58%), Libya (53%), and Trinidad and Tobago (50%); all of these countries have more than half of their inhabitants living under extremely bright skies.

From Cokin:
 
The dark side has never been so attractive.
 
Hampstead, MD — June 14, 2016 — Only a few months after having introduced NUANCES Full ND filters – the best Neutral Density filters available, Cokin is proud to announce NUANCES Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters.
 
Cokin states that their biggest challenge has been to adapt their coating technology to make it graduated. A nano-metallic alloy is gradually applied on both sides of a highly resistant tempered Schott Glass B270, renowned for its high transmittance and low reflection. The result is stunning neutrality, completely free of infrared pollution. Multiple NUANCES filters (GND or Full) can be stacked without color cast.
 
NUANCES GND filters are dedicated to landscape photography. When the dynamic range of film or the sensor is too narrow, they allow a balanced brightness between two parts of an image by efficiently keeping details in overly-bright part of a scene. GND filters effect cannot be reproduced in post-processing, where clipping is hard to recover. The transition between the dark and light areas is soft, making it easier to use in most situations.
 
NUANCES GND filters are designed to fit Cokin’s range of CREATIVE filter-holders, from M to XL sizes. They can be combined with other filters from the CREATIVE Filter System range for unlimited creativity. L and XL sizes to begin shipping in late June with M sizes to ship in late July.
 
B&H carries the Cokin NUANCES line of ND filters.
