New LED Streetlights. Can we get some(more)?

Folks were raving about the moon this weekend and it was fabulous. But....
What if we could see the Night Sky and STARS everynight? And...
What if it cost the city less for us to do it?  LEDs last longer and cost less to run.

"Scientists have developed a new LED streetlight design to make stars more visible in the city."

See details in BBC article:
"It should be seen as an investment for local authorities to install more efficient street lighting, which will save money and energy waste in the long-term.

"Design is great but councils have to follow through with investment."
