Well hopefully the beginning of the end, here in Britain at least.
New rules have been introduced today which amoung other things will hopefully help reduce light pollution. The 'Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005' will bring in fines of up to £5000 for individuals and £20,000 for businesses for light that is 'prejudicial to health or a nuisance'.
It would be amazing if this would lead to me getting to see anything other than the brightest stars and planets.
