Lights out in the Czech Republic

The Czech republic bows to the powerful skywatcher lobby and bans light-pollution:

The new law defines “light pollution” as “every form of illumination by artificial light which is dispersed outside the areas it is dedicated to, particularly if directed above the level of the horizon.”� Under the law, Czech Republic citizens and organizations are obligated to “take measures to prevent the occurrence of light pollution of the air.”
