Easy Ways to Reduce Your Skyglow Impact
Deschutes County passed a light ordinance in 1994 to help curb light pollution. According to the ordinance, all private and commercial light fixtures that use bulbs brighter than 120 watts must be shielded and directed downward.
Also see The Dark Sky Society, which supports educational and legislative efforts to eliminate light pollution.
