Out where I live I have a really long driveway, 1630 feet to be exact (found out when it was regraveled and graded), and there is a security light a few hundred feet from my house. Between the trees and it being an older style one it really didn't interfere and I could still see the MW and even Andromeda from my yard. We had some severe storms come through last Friday and they took the pole that had the transformer and the security light down, and so they replaced all that, and they put an LED one on. Now my yard is lit well enough to wander around outside at night even from that far away. Ugh, I wonder how hard it would be to install a shield that I could send up when I am using my equipment in the front yard.
