Crossing my front yard on my way to a Cub Scout meeting, I casually glanced skyward and caught a bright meteor gliding amongst the stars. ~." out of breath kid banging on the front door of the meeting place. My mother at 91 still fives in that same home ~t, never repeat itseff. Over the intervening 60 years, a bright of lighthas crept outward from our dries, making the nighttime sky nearly inaccessible to urban dwellers. The shooting star that I saw in 1958 would be invisible to a 21st century child repeating the same scenario. Cities changed from incandescent to mercury and high pressure sodium vapor lighting, and now, because of even greater efficiency and a more natural illumination, LED lamps. From Moravian College's Sky Deck, the highest accessible location to students on campus, agood night means that 75 stars are visible to the unaided eye. Moravian's light pollution footprint is substantial, even though the campus has benefited greatly from LED technology. SlilL more than half of the electrfeity that lights Main Campus is directed skyward where it helps to disrupt the nighttime ecology of our trees and plants and also hides the stars. Buildings like PPHAC have decorative ground lighting splashed upon their walls. The new-soccer field lights are kept burning regardless of field usage. Yet I firmly believe that Moravian is still ahead of the game, and I'd like to ~ three additional suggestions which would save the College even more money and improve lighting efficiency. Please turn off the decorative ground lighting of buildings sttch as PPHAC. Attach an internal sheet of tinfoil or use reflective paint on each of the four Skyward , pointing glass panes of main campus lamp posts to focus more light downward and augment ground illumination. Finally, continue to retrofit old Island COnservancy project. Construction continues on 9000-square tout Catalina Island Conservancy's Trail lamps with new LED technology.
