Reminds me of one of my pet subjects.  I was looking up the CollRegs one day, looking for details for placement of navigation lights, and one of the regulations states that the nav lights shall be lit from sunset to sunrise, and no other lights may be shown that may obstruct or obscure these nav lights (or words to that effect).  Yet these floating gin palaces are all lit up like fairgrounds.  I guess they must have some shielding or something so they don't shine upwards to "wash out" the light from the nav lights.  Anyway, with all that other light from them, no-one can say that can't see these other palaces.
