Last week was International Dark Sky Week, a week that draws attention to problems associated with light pollution and promoting simple solutions available to mitigate it.
The nighttime environment is a precious natural resource for all life on Earth, but the glow of uncontrolled outdoor lighting has hidden the stars and changed our perception of the night. Until recently, for all of human history, our ancestors experienced a sky brimming with stars – a night sky that inspired science, religion, philosophy, art and literature, including some of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets.
The natural night sky is our common and universal heritage, yet is rapidly becoming unknown to the newest generations…Experiencing the night sky provides perspective, inspiration, and leads us to reflect on our humanity and place in the universe. The history of scientific discovery and even human curiosity itself is indebted to the natural night sky.*
Primelite is doing our part to help promote dark skies with the release of our LED versions of the “Dark Sky Friendly” street light, #1235. With it’s LEDs nestled in the prismatic top, light faces down while avoiding any uplight lightspill. #1235 is available with either a LED40 (equal to 70w MH) or LED52 (125w MH) and fits any of our 3″ posts.
Together we can work to bring back the sky for future generations
