The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) has updated the notice Minimizing Lighting Impacts from Oil and Gas Activities to advise oil and gas operators of new, recommended lighting practices to preserve the dark skies necessary for the University of Texas McDonald Observatory in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. These recommended practices are the result of a collaborative effort by the McDonald Observatory, Permian Basin Petroleum Association, Texas Oil and Gas Association and the American Petroleum Institute.
