Jordan Pasture limits the type of lights that are allowed to limit light pollution. Light pollution ruins our view of the stars by washing out the sky so stars are harder to see. Economically, light pollution wastes energy, as it comes from light that spills into the sky rather than illuminating roads or yards. Excessive lighting at night makes it easier for criminals to see what they're doing and for the public not to notice them. It's potentially dangerous to the health of humans and other species. Humans rely on darkness to produce melatonin, a chemical that helps us sleep more deeply and fight cancer.
