Don't Obscure the Moonlight

Above, light pollution around the world at night. Notice where the concentration is.

We need to replace our outdoor lighting here at The Meadows, our home in North Haven. I've been noticing the uptick of discussion about light pollution. Our local Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, an avid naturalist and beach drummer, has brought the conversation to light locally (yes, the pun was intended).
At first I thought it was a bit crunchy; but just think of how bright the stars are, here at home on the East End when returning from the city or any metropolotian area. I think I'll replace my outdoor lighting with dark sky fixtures.
