Moon And Sun Light Fixture

Sun Moon Light Fixture Dave Delisle 2012

There are plenty of ‘moon lamps‘ available out there. But what I have in mind is a normal light fixture that has a moon image that will glow-in-the-dark. So when the light is on it looks like the sun, and when it’s off it looks like the moon.

This was inspired by those neat Dinosaur coins the Canadian Mint is releasing.

This would be great for a kids room or the grownup stargazers among us. Would compliment a ceiling populated with glow-in-the-dark stars nicely.

I’m not entirely sure if this is possible – would the heat from the bulbs damage the glowing properties of the moon image? Can the moon image be opaque enough for the light to pass through? Maybe someone out there smarter than me (which isn’t saying a lot) can provide insight.

  1. Those fixtures would look really good on the lights in my living room and bedroom. I would love to own one 🙂

  2. Anyone ever figure this out? This is exactly what I’m looking for to put up in my son’s room. I see Dave was going to try something but i didn’t see a follow-up.
