Glenn WilliamsUnited StatesLight pollution is an incredibly important environmental and aesthetic issue that gets little attention. My town is switching the street lights over to more appropriate lighting. Much less light pollution and the streets are lit better. 7/16/2017 2:04:21 PMGoogle

Michael WielandUnited StatesI agree that too much energy is wasted to light up deserted areas at night. A more efficient way of providing visibility and safety needs to be developed in order for light pollution to recede. It is inconceivable why an opportunity that addresses so many issues is not investigated more extensively. Thank you. Sincerely Michael Wieland8/12/2015 12:25:46 PMGoogle

glenn shillerUnited StatesLight pollution is a continuing problem and hopefully with education and limiting lighting to minimum standards required for safety we can get the skies back to where people can enjoy the night skies again without driving for miles.12/10/2014 3:39:38 AMGoogle

Cheryl CarneyUnited StatesTexas become a light omitting beacon with communities having loosely regulated ordinances; creating long pockets of light pollution though the highway systems, unshielded lighting installed by municipal run power company (CPS), and is now trying to reduce lighting around military bases and observatories. Texas is not a great big bluest sky any longer.4/14/2014 12:03:01 PMGoogle

john kirkpatrickGreat Britain & Northern IrelandI would like to see street lights less bright or even switched off after a certain time, I am unable to use my telescope as well as many others living in Dumfries. We have street lights less than 15meters apart and it would also save our council money and as dumfries and galloway is reconised as a dark site for astronomy, Dumfries town spoils it all with the heavy pollution for such a small town 9/10/2011 12:53:36 PMGoogle

David SindelUnited StatesThank you so much for caring about light pollution here in connecticut. I live about 3 miles from the Mohegan Sun Casino - it lowers the limiting magnitude from 5.6 to 3.6 in its direction!8/24/2008 10:38:54 PMGoogle
J. Arnold RaceyUnited StatesIn the area in which I've lived for 30 years, the lighting I object to most is the "decorative" lighting: Lighting is aimed upwards from the ground to highlight flags---and a MONSTROUS set of 3 church crosses. The excessive humidity in my locality further increases the awful glow set up by these shafts of light! I need dark skies when I pray! I feel closest to God when outdoors, and the man-made glowing sky foists a thick veil to distract me with anger at the thoughtlessness of man. Human selfishness attempts to distract us from our Creator---and they're increasingly more successful at it. It's a comfort to see God's beautiful sky! While astronomers might not place the same emphasis on God as I, we've common ground on which we agree: PLEASE pass---AND enforce---legislation to restore our dark skies! I, too, enjoy the planets, comets, and other naked-eye phenomena in the heavens!7/18/2008 4:27:18 AMForum
Sam EnglandUnited StatesIt's hard to believe that it seems only astronomers are passionate about this issue. Everyone used to love to stargaze. Perhaps its been so long since so many people could see the stars that they've almost forgotten that they are there. I'm surprised, looking at the satellite map that one can even see the planets in Connecticut.6/22/2008 9:15:45 PMForum

Claudio BettiniItalyWhat's the purpose of illuminating the sky? We have this problem in Italy too. You go to parks and you see lighting on the ground illuminating a tree!!! What's the purpose of that? We are using resources for nothing and pay for them. Governments think of ways to raise our taxes yet they fail to see that there are way to conserve energy and billions of dollars that could be spent wisely to support other human causes. Unfortunately, we live in a society where the bottom line became more important than our own very basic needs. I wish you the best of luck in your quest.5/16/2008 4:37:28 PME-Mail

Rathnasree NandivadaIndiaLiving in a city like Delhi, India, I feel that all possible inspiration that stars provide, the sense of peace and a oneness with the Universe that they give, has been taken away from our children who are condemned to live in cities like this.
