Cool! I was wondering where to get clear sunglasses, but Dineen just told me that you can buy safety goggles relatively inexpensively. Combine those with your adhesive sodium spectral filter film, and that should work perfectly.
I swear, America is collectively afraid of the dark. I usually hold my hand in front of them, but that only does so much. Rowan says that there is so much more out there, and I really want to see it one of these years.
Yes, the American populace is both dumbed-down and continually fearful -- hence all of the 'Conspiracy Theories' (I hate to break it to them, but most people are social beings, and the probability of maintaining a secret decreases exponentially with the number of people involved in said conspiracy, making the success of one highly unlikely -- Hell, even the al-Qaeda people blabbed about their airplane plans, but the U.S. Government willfully choose to ignore them, which is a different thing altogether).

Anyway, those sodium lights have such a narrow emission band that the contrast is almost completely binary (light/impenetrable darkness). You could hide a platoon in those black shadows and not see anything until the muzzle flashes started. They are hardly "security lights" -- more like the opposite.

Mr. Garibaldi? Who is that?
Sorry, I really don't get the reference ...

As I'm  big fan of naked-eye celestial observations, that would be great if someone did.
Like Eruannlass mentions, I suppose some astronomy stuff shop might have that foil, and you could stick it on your sunglasses. No idea whether that'd work but its worth a try.

You weren't really supposed to, I did that for my private amusement. :-)

{The reference is to Babylon 5, but if you're not familiar with that series it is way too much back-story to tell. Think of it as my own private "Darmok and Gilead at Tanagra".}
