Out where I live I have a very long drive, 1630 feet to be precise (discovered when it was regraveled and rated), and there is a security light a few hundred feet from my property.  Between the trees and it being an older style one it really didn't interfere and I could still find the MW as well as Andromeda from my lawn.  We had some severe storms come through last Friday and they took the rod which had the transformer and the security light down, and thus they replaced that, plus they place an LED one on.  My lawn is lit well enough to roam outside at night from that far away.  Ugh, I wonder how hard it would be to install a shield that I could send up once I'm using my gear at the front yard.
