A Bright Idea to Darken the Night Sky

String lights over a beer garden are iconic. They foster a festive mood that leads to all sorts of laughter, sharing, and merriment. Unfortunately, they also illuminate the night sky, contributing to light pollution.
Is it possible to keep the party vibe alive without lighting up the night sky? The answer of course is “yes.”
Solve two problems at once. Repurpose and focus the beams of light where they belong – on the Earthlings partying happily below on good ol Terra Firma. And there’s a bonus benefit – perhaps our Worthy guests will look up, see the beer can shields, and have a conversation about light pollution.
