Re: Look mummy, there's a bright light in the sky
"LED street lights have NOT been deployed around here"
FWIW, if you can get to a windows above the level of the street lights, you will see a much darker sky than those areas still using older sodium lamps. The new lamps have very good directional cast and so sky scatter is markedly reduced.
From my own experience, I get a much better sky view from the attic window and driving over the hill down into my town, the sky glow over it is way less than the orange glow from the town over the river which is yet to replace their orange sodium poles.
Of course, that doesn't help with the inevitable UK wide cloud cover whenever there's something really interesting to see!
