dealership sees the light

My Google Alert on light pollution had an interesting entry. The "Yarmouth" word caught my eye. Close to home. Well, in Canada.

The tickler said that a car dealership in Yarmouth County turned off its bright lights to help promote astro-tourism in the area.

The full article went on to say that Tim Doucette appreciated the gesture by the Tusket Ford shop.

Hopefully other businesses will reduce their light pollution after local midnight. It will save money and energy, improve the health and quality of life for humans, flora, and fauna. And reveal the wonder, once again, of the night sky.
