Just to clarify and avoid ambiguity:

Is that blinking as in flashing at a periodic interval, or, blinking as in damn annoying ? :icon_salut::D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Point your telescope at his bedroom window and pretend you're watching him. It's weird I know, but it will probably freak him out and make you feel better at the same time.

Well, now that you let the cat out of the bag (the evil thing I was thinking), one can go up to the light string and remove one bulb. If your'e lucky and the string is "series" connected, all the lights will go out and the owner might take the message when he finds one bub missing. Alas, if the string is parallel connected, only one light will not work and your'e back to square one:mad:

My back garden faces south which means most of my observing is done over my back neighbour's roof. Every night he leaves on every light in the house and with the curtains open. And most nights his security light too. Annoying.
