What Exactly Are We Lighting? Is there something up in the sky that we need to illuminate? No. It's just plain wasted light that also pollutes the sky. Think of all the light going up into the sky as wasted energy. How much waste? It's hard to define in dollars, but if astronauts can see all that light from up in space, it's significant.

Where Did all the Stars Go? Astronomers will give you an earful about light pollution. It ruins their business. If you can't see the stars with your naked eye because of sky glow, they can't do much better, even with powerful telescopes.

In fact, it was astronomers in the Phoenix, Arizona area that first started to publicize the problem of sky glow and push for what they called "Dark Skies" regulations to limit lighting brightness and direction. The outgrowth of this movement is an organization called the International Dark Skies Association or IDA. They have been instrumental in pushing for Lighting Control regulations in many communities.
