Dark Sky Lighting

Dark Sky Lighting

 

Every year light pollution kills large populations of birds & wildlife, and also has a negative impact on human health. Did you know that roughly 80% of Americans cannot see the Milky Way? The full cut-off lighting that was used in the town of Harmony preserves the natural night sky for observers, improves safety as glare contracts eye pupils, and has incredible energy savings. It has been estimated that 1/3 of light is wasted due to light pollution.

The International Dark Sky Assoc. created a new recognition for Harmony as the first dark sky developed community.
