Light Pollution is a severe problem for amateur and professional astronomers, and, indeed, for the general public. All these suffer from a lack of awareness of the issues, however. Poor quality outdoor nighttime lighting has several major problems: light trespass, glare, clutter and confusion, urban sky glow, and energy waste. There are solutions to the light pollution problem, most involving the use of better quality lighting. We all must educate our colleagues and the public about the issues, and push for solutions. Quality lighting is compatible with dark skies, and with energy savings. Our view of the universe, as professionals and as the public, and our children’s, depends on our being successful.
