My neighbor has a motion activated light that shines right into my back yard. It's almost blinding when you're eves are adjusted to the extreme dark, and it comes on. I've given serious though to shooting it out with a BB gun... ;-)a

I was thankful for where I lived back in Aus. We lived in one of the only streets where, for some unknown reason, there were no street lights and we didn't have neighbours on each side. Now I'm living in Canmore, Alberta (which I though would be even darker!) and I have a street light beating down its harsh rays like the sun right in my face as soon as I step outside.

My nearest neighbours are 1/2 mile in either direction. Great spot for night photography. Also have to be careful though not to step on a bear ;)

maybe try to talk to him. Show him Jupiter, get him digging some astro stuff, maybe bribe him with a beer? BB gun is the first thing I thought too, but then he might put up 3 lights just to piss you off

Probably a better solution... ;-)a The BB gun is what pops into my head first when I'm out in the middle of a session, and it blinds me coming on for no apparent reason. Probably the beer option would do more for neighbor relations...

I am a member of the IDA and they have a nice form letter to fill out and send or give to neighbors.
I just haven't done it yet.
