Artificial light emission within the limits of major cities is increasing year by year. The level of this rapid growth depends on the influence of complex factors such as urban enlargement, air pollution, environmental conditions, lack of outdoor lighting master-planning, etc. Continuing monitoring of sky glow changes is an important part of the lighting environment’s complex analysis. This paper estimates the contribution of 18 districts of St. Petersburg to the glow between 2014 and 2017, evaluated with the use of Garstang’s model and GIS-based analysis of VIIRS data. The dynamic changes in sky brightness show a significant increase in the anthropogenic sky glow over three years.
