Orlando in Nat Geographic

There is a somewhat interesting article on Orlando this month in National Geographic. It’s really not as bad to live here as the article makes it seem !

There is this one picture from the article that is from a development about a mile away from our home.

Light Pollution

These lights turn on every evening and light up our otherwise dark sky. Why the builder didn’t use directional ‘dark sky’ lighting is beyond me. The poor people who live here eventually will have horrible, bright orange light shining in their houses. On the second floor as well. There will be no escape. Big thumbs down to Trans Eastern builders! At least once it’s done the buildings will keep the glare contained from the surrounding area. Unfortunately even then it will send loads of light pollution upwards.
