    The Flag Code states that "when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness." "Proper illumination" is generally taken to mean lit so it is easily visible, not merely recognizable, and is applicable to flying the flag anywhere, even at a private residence.

    If you have a porch light or some other means of lighting the place the flag is flying, that would be appropriate, but unless the street lamp is very close to your home, I would recommend taking the flag down at night rather than accidentally direspecting it.
