What is Moon Lighting
Moon lighting, in the context of the lighting industry, refers to a technique used to create a soft and ambient illumination in outdoor spaces, reminiscent of the gentle glow of moonlight. This lighting technique involves strategically placing fixtures high in trees or structures to cast light from above, often filtered through foliage or other features, to achieve a natural and ethereal effect.
The goal of moon lighting is to create a serene and enchanting atmosphere, rather than providing bright and intense illumination for security or task lighting purposes. It is commonly achieved using low voltage landscape lighting, such as LED fixtures, to create a soft and diffused glow that mimics the natural light of the moon.
Moon lighting installations are best suited for areas with trees that have large canopies, as they provide an ideal canvas for the soft and gentle illumination. By carefully positioning the lights, moon lighting creates a subtle play of light and shadow, casting a soothing and tranquil ambiance in outdoor spaces.
This technique is favored by individuals who appreciate the aesthetic appeal and the calming effect it brings to their outdoor areas. Moon lighting is often used in residential landscapes, gardens, parks, and commercial properties where a serene and enchanting ambiance is desired.
