Not sure what it's like where you live, but since Cinestill 800 was first introduced, there's been a lot of change here in terms of outdoor night lighting.
Streetlights are now often white LEDs, which won't play as well with tungsten film. Some people seem to be into the blue that you get under these conditions; I am not really into it, though I might consider it as a particular look depending on what I was going for.
It is very mixed. If the lighting has been renewed recently it will be LEDs (usually unpleasantly bright) but many places still have a wide variety of older light types. Often it is impossible to get a "correct" colour balance due to the mixture of sources. Living out of town, the horizon towards the towns is still a orange glow from the light pollution. Due to the current situation, I haven't been anywhere for ages where I can see any more than the very brightest stars.

Therein lies the problem with color/white balance in general. The spectra from even daylight balanced LEDs is a poor approximation of black-body 5200K.

...and CineStill 800 is not. The thread strayed a bit.
