Streetlight sense

The ugly cobra-head luminaires blighting Austin streets don't need to be what they are. It used to be possible for people to have the sides painted or even a shield put in place so that the lights didn't shine where they shouldn't, but that was a long time ago. I love the idea of lunar-resonant streetlights. Others do, too, since this idea has won a design award. The Metropolis article doesn't seem to be on line yet. Best is the natural light or lack of it between sunset and sunrise, but this is an improvement.
