[104.01] Light Pollution: A Primer

R.L. Hawkins, D.B. Caton (Appalachian St. U. and NC-IDA)

We present the basics of light pollution for astronomers who have not explored the topic. The main sources of poor lighting (fixtures and techniques) are illustrated, along with proper methods for each situation. A list of suggested approaches to solving the problem is presented, along with references and links to further information sources. For educators, a PowerPoint presentation suitable for a class lecture, along with notes, will be provided on CDR or by download off the Internet.
