Astronomers hate light pollution. Today it is difficult to find a "dark sky". Many people have heard of but never actually seen the Milky Way. Every night there is a "symphony of sights" in the night sky, But most are now washed out by lights shining into the sky. See https://skyandtelescope.

Honestly is so unfair that so many people will never get to see the clear night sky and instead just look up and see this muddy version of our universe. I propose there be a new holiday where everybody is forced to turn off all their lights so that people who don't live in the sticks can get a chance to see the beauty.
Light pollution interferes with astronomical research, Disrupts ecosystems, Has adverse health effects and wastes energy. Many of the animals that it harms may seem annoying but they are the base of our ecosystem. If you do not care about animals life than consider that light pollution disturbs the natural sleep patterns of humans as well, Hurting our mental heath and the economy.

People use to work by dim candlelight and could not see anything at night. Sure they could see the stars and planets but they feared the night.
To be honest the sky itself with the atmosphere distorts the stars. Telescopes in space can view the stars better than an observatory on earth.
Cities will become massive and they will look like the city in star wars a glowing planet of light. Hopefully in the future people can look at the stars in space.
