Starry Night-The Neighborhoods of Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87501
Last night I received a call from a neighbor of a vacant home I have listed for sale. She lives in a neighborhood of luxury homes and it was a friendly call to say that someone had forgotten to turn off an outdoor porch light. She went on to say that she’d give me a couple of days to have it turned off or she would call the sheriff. Of course, I immediately went and took care of the problem.
On January 1, 2000, the New Mexico Sky Protection Act was passed. There is also a Santa Fe County Low- Light ordinance to “preserve and enhance the state’s dark sky while promoting safety, conserving energy and preserving the environment for astronomy.” Across the state, there is a fine of $25 for light pollution and an enforcement clause signed by the Governor, Bill Richardson.
I invite you to lift your eyes to the night sky, behold the string of stars woven in gorgeous abundance around a moon hiding behind the clouds.
