Appropriate luminaires

Here are some useful references to help you choose luminaires.

Internet

The International Dark-Sky Association website lists all those fixtures that meet the "dark sky friendly" seal of approval (FSA).

The Starry night lights website offers a wide range of residential luminaires that do not light up the sky and can be ordered on-line.


Distributors

Contact your local distributor of electrical supplies to order approved products.
