Letter: The sky is beyond the limit

IF I LIVED in Peru and a mile-square advertising frame appeared in the evening sky where Venus should be, the only product I'd buy would be the revolutionary anti-Western goods of the Shining Path ('The heavens open', 16 May).

It is obscene to fill the skies with advertisements for goods that two-thirds of humanity cannot afford. Ads for green forests will be followed by propaganda - Coke, Jesus, the free market. Light pollution is already a problem in the Western world, since too much motorway and street lighting is indiscriminate. Is no place safe from the self-promotions of publicists?
