Mayo Dark Skies: Church and Community Project, Newport

Georgia from Friends of Mayo Dark Skies sent us information on the Church and Community Project happening in Newport in relation to light pollution.

They are advocating for as many churches as possible to rethink their lighting at night and remove architectural floodlighting pointing into the sky. Promoting the message to let natural light shine down from the heavens, rather than directing artificial lighting into them.  

Whilst their project is not yet complete, it has produced some impressive responses and results from phase 1 and here is a link to the pictures and conceptual designs so far.
