Light Pollution, Energy Saving, Astronomy



Unfortunately, an undisturbed sky is no longer an experience possible for everybody. Amateur Astronomers and Wildlife Associations worldwide regard the increasing light pollution with increasing concern. Electric energy is wasted irrespective of world wide concern on CO2 pollution.
Bad street illumination is clearly visible even from space satellites, and a new age of sky commercials has started. During the second world war, long range searchlights were applied to detect air-crafts attacking during night time. Today, modern versions of these searchlights are successfully applied by an increasing number of companies for advertising. Companies advertise with long range lasers, able to dominate the sky within a radius of 50 km. In the city of Sonderborg, Denmark, a local high tech company applied a computer controlled long range searchlight beam in short periods, without any public warning.
