The end of night

Paul Bogards book "The end of night - searching for natural darkness in an age of artificial light" should make most of us see the light. By ever increasing and thoughtless light pollution we are depriving ourselves of the most beautiful and spiritual sights of all; the night sky. This clear as glass, three-dimentional dome above us with so many stars the sky looks like snow, or as Bogard says; so starlit the earth seems to drop away. Having read his book I will never look at outdoor lighting in the same way again.
