The skyglow from street lights means we in any urban area rarely get to see the true wonder of the night sky. This frustrates astronomers, but more significant, limits our appreciation of the natural environment. For these reasons, lighting should be used selectively and efficiently – and this requires research, good science and appropriate guidance to guide those responsible for installing and maintaining all the sources of lighting that impacts our lives every night.
