Recommended Lighting Practices

February 15, 2018

TXOGA, the Permian Basin Petroleum Association (PBPA), and the University of Texas McDonald Observatory are working to reduce light pollution. Knowing that dark skies are vital to those endeavors, these organizations have collaborated to create recommendations for lighting practices. The recommendations are targeted at operations in the Texas counties of Brewster, Culberson, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Pecos, Presidio, and Reeves to help protect the Observatory, and are equally beneficial across the industry. The recommendations range from preparing a lighting plan, using an audiovisual warning system, to options if the need to flare arises. Click here for more info:
