Yeah don't think it's possible to cast a glow for 50 miles around , It would have to be huge and the power consumption would be off the charts .
Several studies over the last decade have suggested that the modern practice of keeping our bodies exposed to artificial light at night, or LAN, increases cancer risk, especially for cancers (such as breast and prostate cancers) that require hormones to grow. Women who work night shifts have shown higher rates of breast cancer,1 whereas blind women, who are not likely to be exposed to or perceive LAN, have shown decreased risks.2 In 2007, the International Agency for Cancer Research declared shiftwork a probable human carcinogen.3 Now a large study of 164 countries adds another piece of evidence, implicating overall light pollution.

It's a large reflective satellite in geostationary orbit. The mirrors would realign between the angle of the Sun and the desired point on the planet.
