Find Dark Sky Friendly Lighting

The International Dark-Sky Association’s Fixture Seal of Approval program certifies outdoor lighting fixtures as being Dark Sky Friendly, meaning that they minimize glare while reducing light trespass and skyglow.

All products approved in the program are required to be fully shielded and to minimize the amount of blue light in the nighttime environment. To learn more about good outdoor lighting, visit our Lighting Guidelines page or our Outdoor Light Fixture Replacement Options page .

Neither the Comal County Friends of the Night sky nor IDA sell lighting. To find retailers that sell good lighting, see the IDA’s Dark Sky Retailers page.

Protect your community from Light Pollution!

The Comal County Friends of the Night Sky was formed in March, 2020 by a group of concerned residents who first met using Zoom. We are working on several initiatives to facilitate night sky friendly lighting in order to preserve and improve the stunning night sky of the Texas Hill Country and Comal County, TX.
