How Donald Pettit deals with light pollution

I ran across this video on Youtube. It should start at the beginning of the interview with former astronaut Donald Pettit explaining how he deals with a pesky streetlight in front of his house.

That's crazy, Melanie! Fyi, Don Pettit spoke to HAS last year. It was an impressive talk, but I'm more blown away by this.
