Neon moon

Astronomy professors at the University of Alabama and Samford University are upset about light pollution, which is to be expected given that it keeps them from seeing many of the objects that are the raisons d'ĂȘtre for their jobs. "Full cutoff" and "shoebox" lights would cut down on the glare by blocking the light from flooding toward the sky, which might enhance nighttime visibility for the two-thirds of Americans who can't see the Milky Way.
