"When beggars die, there are no comets seen;
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."

New Jersey Good Lighting Forum

The New Jersey Good Lighting Forum (NJGL) is a mailing list for citizens concerned about light pollution and good lighting.

Light pollution is wasted energy. It contributes to air pollution, its glare component is hazardous to drivers, it affects flora and fauna, its light trespass component is a public nuisance, it is a health hazard, it is aesthetically unpleasant and ruins the night sky!
