I'm wondering if anyone has considered making the argument that light pollution makes it more difficult to find these objects.
It doesn't simply because the survey scopes are on top of mountains away from sources of light polution. I don't think you would run a serious professional NEO survey setup from urban locations

Lots of amatures are searching and discovering NEO's. About 5% according to the university of Cambridge.
IMO it is indeed a vaild arguement to reducing LP.
