Question #1: Star-gazing Permit ()

I was listening to your show mentioning how enjoyable it was to go stargazing and watch the Perseids meteor shower and am aware that some of the hosts live in or near the New York area. New York has a requirement to get a permit for stargazing (maybe only in a few parks and beaches; I'm unsure), and I was wondering what your thoughts are on this. Doesn't this inherently limit stargazers? Is there a benefit to the permit fee, or is it just revenue for the state? Do you know of other states that do this? Is this an 'anti-science' permit for charging people to enjoy the night sky? Thanks for your time!

Item #1: An extensive study finds that political ads have an insignificant effect on voter choice, regardless of any variable considered, such as political affiliation, location, and positive vs. negative ads.[5]
Item #2: A traffic simulation finds that small numbers of autonomous vehicles (<20%) could significantly slow overall traffic.[6]
Item #3: A new study suggests that oxygen from Earth has been reacting with iron on the surface of the Moon.[7]
