Re: Eight times brighter than the Moon?

Like most Chinese cities, this place is really busy and has a ton of lights inside buildings. They could probably turn a lot of streetlamps down or off that are near big buildings already pouring a ton of light out and save some money there. Meanwhile, it's going to be more cost-effective to just get more efficient systems for generating power and turning it into light rather than sending even more unneeded junk into orbit.
