    Much more likely I'd rent a spot light and shine it at the clouds.

    That beats me, Bob. I'd simply thought of turning everything I could on in the house.

    There's one advantage of this I can see, if a lot of people in Tucson do this: Kitt Peak will have a rare opportunity for clear sky viewing.

    Then again, they're always pushing for, and have gotten, laws regulating light usage in the city just for their sake, so fuck 'em.

    If I thought this might happen here, I'd probably get my 4" reflector out and start looking around. But it won't happen, because it's completely idiotic, and nearly everyone knows it, so I'll probably just spend the hour finding more lights to turn on.

    I'm up in Arnold right now and I have a good bit of light to fire up, including a big mercury street light outside that comes on every night anyway — even when we're away.

    I'll light the place up with all the window blinds raised and see if I can get a decent camera exposure out of it from down the hill.

    No electric lights, huh, what about all those candles, gas & propane lanterns they will use instead, can you imagine all the carbon monoxide and CO2 spewed into the air, probably more than the electric lights. What a bunch of morons.
