Milky Way Night

We should set aside one night per year when we turn off all of the outdoor lights for a few hours. The night wouldn't be on a fixed date, because we would need it to be cloudless and probably moonless.

On this night, with all of the outdoor lighting turned off, the light pollution would be reduced enough that we would be able to see the Milky Way in the night sky. And many more stars.

That would be cool. Who knows, I think the mere sight of this would be so overwhelming, we'd schedule it more often.
