Helping to Bring The Stars Back To Our Skies

Dark Sky Cities
Dark Sky Cities - Bringing the Stars Back to City Skies (Dramatization)

 

“Help(ing to) bring the stars back to the skies through Responsible Lighting.”

 

Dark Sky

The dark-sky movement is a campaign to reduce light pollution. The advantages of reducing light pollution include an increased number of stars visible at night, reducing the effects of electric lighting on the environment, improving the well-being, health and safety of both people and wildlife, and cutting down on energy usage. (Wikipedia) ⭐️

 

Dark Sky Lighting

 

The Dark Sky mantra has long been an inspiration here at Primelite Mfg. We truly believe in the objectives and goals of the Dark Sky movement and have worked consistently to offer stylish, efficient, reliable and economical  Dark Sky friendly fixtures. It is our goal to help bring the stars back to the skies through responsible lighting.

The Chicago skyline at night suffering from “skyglow” obliterating the stars in the sky

 

Right now it’s virtually impossible to see the stars above most cities across the globe. The urban skyglow is so intense that it basically obliterates any chance of viewing the stars above. 

 

Beautiful night view of the galaxy and stars
Far away from city lights the skies are filled with stars, and stars, and stars

 

Have you ever seen, in person or a photo, the night sky from places far away from the city lights? Its almost as if you can see the whole galaxy itself! Stars, stars and stars for as far as the eyes can see. Truly magical!

Primelite’s Dark Sky Cast Lanterns

 

Dark Sky fixtures #1333 & #1327
Dark Sky Lanterns #1327 DS & 1333 DS

 

It is with this dedication that we are highlighting 2 lanterns from our Dark Sky friendly collection;  Lantern #1327 DS LED and Lantern #1333 DS LED. Both lanterns are constructed of cast aluminum, with their electrical components, LEDs and drivers installed within the head of the fixture. Thus ensuring light output is reflected down, illuminating the area below, with no upward light spill or extraneous illumination. We work hard to make sure our lighting, once installed, does not add to any existing skyglow.
