My Light Pollution Battle

Hey Space Placers!

I have undertaken my own personal light poluution battle. Two months ago a cell phone tower that used to have red lights was changed to a night vision destroying high intensity strobe light that flashes once a second.

This light is so bright that it casts shadows in our backyard and lights the interior walls of certain rooms of our house. We cannot have the windows open at night because the light is everywhere.

I used to be able to enjoyt the night sky from my back longer. The light leaves spots in my eyes and is too bright to see anything but it flashing once a second.

I have sent an email to the FAA, the cell phone tower owner and user, my congressman and the local news station.

Thhis light has not been set to FAA standards in which the light's output is adjusted according to the time of day. The light is as bright during the day as it is at night.

I will let you know how it goes. Me against big corporate America.......
