I technically live in a suburb of Ithaca, just north of Cornell’s campus.  On my walk home last night, I met one of the new neighbors:

A female deer and her two fawns apparently live on or near the church land across the street.  I was able to walk up to about 10 feet away to get these photos.  These deer are pretty tame … or at least, not the brightest.

I have to admit, I actually like the orange glow of high-pressure sodium lighting (the most common street and highway lighting in American cities).  Flying over the country at night, you can see large cities and small towns from above, glowing like orange circuit boards.  As LEDs become cheaper and easier to install, our cities may become whiter and brighter at night.

But won’t we miss this, just a little bit?
