Roughly 2/3 of Americans can no longer see our Milky Way Galaxy from their homes at night. The reason, poorly designed and installed outdoor lights are throwing ever increasing quantities of light up into the night sky. Starry Night Lights thinks this needs to change.

While other companies will sell absolutely any light fixture you might think you need, we’re considerably more selective. We only offer night sky friendly outdoor lights. These are exterior lights that shine down onto the ground, and nowhere else. That’s our mission statement in a nutshell

Roughly 2/3 of Americans can no longer see our Milky Way Galaxy from their homes at night. The reason, poorly designed and installed outdoor lights are throwing ever increasing quantities of light up into the night sky. This light pollution is overwhelming the night sky. Instead of seeing thousands of stars in an inky black sky, most people now see just a handful against a murky, orange light polluted sky. This is a sad state of affairs as we lose yet another bit of our heritage. Enter Starry Night Lights.

Incorporated in the spring of 2005, Starry Night Lights (http://www.StarryNightLights.com) was founded with one simple goal, to preserve our heritage of star-filled skies. “While other companies will sell absolutely any light fixture you might think you need, we’re considerably more selective. We only offer night sky friendly outdoor lights. These are exterior lights that shine down onto the ground, and nowhere else. That’s our mission statement in a nutshell” according to Starry Night Lights founder Anthony Arrigo. “We know that people need to light at night. That’s not the question. The question is why there are so many environmentally damaging fixtures to choose from. We’ve browsed through hundreds of catalogs and website to assemble the largest collection of environmentally friendly outdoor lights. We won’t sell you a trashy brass & glass fixture that’ll light up the night sky as well as your neighbor’s property. That would be unethical on our part. Every single one of our light fixtures shines all of the light it generates down onto the ground, where it’s needed. None will light up the night sky or neighboring properties.”

In a little over a year, Starry Night Lights has assembled an industry leading collection of dark sky friendly outdoor lighting products. From wall packs to wall sconces and pole tops to pendants, Starry Night Lights has hundreds of fixtures that are as attractive as they are friendly. If you’ve got an outdoor lighting ordinance in your area, Starry Night Lights is the place to go. Even if you don’t have an ordinance in your area, you should be looking here first. Think about it, if you’re not installing friendly outdoor lights, what exactly are you installing?
