I feel like it's unrealistic for the carrier to be all lit up like that while in theater, and especially while recovering aircraft. I'm open to correction by those with real world experience of course.

These days there are so many sensors that would see the carrier long before the lights are visible. They probably close the hangar doors and use minimal lighting but by the time anything is close enough to see the lights on the carrier, they'd have seen it on radar, or picked up the RWR contact. If they need to go stealth (for some semblance of stealth), I'm sure they turn the lights off. It would certainly make night ops easier especially since I'm sure planes don't keep their landing lights on while taxiing blinding the deck crew constantly.

Night flight ops in theater.

It's an aircraft carrier. In theater is still waaay offshore with destroyers all around it acting as steel shields.

It's not a trench in France in WWI. Orange floodlights are of the least concern. It's a fairly low wavelength and not particularly intense so you have to be pretty close to see it anyway. An aircraft carrier is pretty conspicuous. Aside from the raging amount of noise there is the light from the afterburners from launching, trapping and boltering Hornets.

Better to have the lights on for flight deck safety.

Add sparkles to the hook when catching the wire.

The flight deck is almost always lit up. Maybe not as bright as op's picture. But you gotta be able to see on the Flight deck (it's dangerous)
