I live in the country, and enjoy the starry night sky with little "light pollution"...however, the neighbor has one streetlight by their driveway between their house and ours. I'm hoping it is not a deterrent to the few fireflies I've seen around here...or moths and others that are affected by unnatural lights.

the last few nights ive seen fireflies out in the yard. I caught 2 last night and had them in a jar hoping to take a video of them lighting up. But for some reason even in the dark my phones camera couldnt register the light they gave off. anyone know a technique of capturing their light?
