Cleaning Up Light Pollution Starting Now, from Science News
Do you live in a place where you can't see the stars because there's too much light? Maybe you should move to the Czech Republic, which on June 3 became the first nation to enact a 'light pollution' law. Science News reports that the new law requires that 'all outdoor light fixtures in the country be shielded to ensure that light goes only in the direction intended, and not above the horizontal.'
