Just having a rant about people on campsites who have excessively bright exterior lights and leave them on at night when they're sitting inside the van, or worse still when they've gone to bed.

Earlier this year in Scotland I was pleased to see that some of the site wardens have installed covers over the lights on the site power bollards, in support of the "dark skies" initiatives in areas like the Galloway Forest. It's a shame when people staying on site undermine that - though in fairness many people come from a town background where lack of night-time lighting seems strange!

I agree totally but...plead guilty as well sometimes. Not deliberately left on but forgotten after a visit to the bins or whatever after dark. Our switch is behind the hook on which coats etc hang so not immediately visible.

Next morning we feel very guilty and would have welcomed someone knocking on the door the previous night to remind us.

My bug bear is those kite thingies on poles that russle when the wind blows. Annoying enough during the day. Infuriating at night.

Not just a problem on campsites. 
Here in the East Neuk with mainly sea around us it's a great spot for stargazing, watching meteor showers and viewing the Milky Way, but our dark garden is often virtually floodlit thanks to neighbours' external wall lights, some of which seem to be left on all night. Probably think it's OK if they're low energy bulbs!
