      I'm an amateur astronomer and light pollution prevents us all from enjoying the wonders of the night sky. I support reducing light pollution to help bring back the night sky and to reduce our energy costs.

      Even in my tiny CNY village, it's getting harder and harder to see the stars. I think a lot of the lighting choices are well-intentioned, but ignorant of the effect.

      Night lighting in relatively new in human times. It changes world's ability to have nighttime as it was. All creatures, including us, have been changed not be the better. Light is force and as we finds more it is not for the better.

      I have a beach house in Westhampton beach, and we have totally lost the night sky as a reslt of a indictive neighbor who has placed 25 spotlights on the Dunes pointing at our house! I want to support these efforts and get some help with stopping them.
