I am now wondering if I would enjoy the skylight effect of an Astrodome.
What are the pros and cons?
Is there enough light during sunlight hours to make it worthwhile?
Is it too bright on some occasions?
Astrodomes or solardomes that are white, that have a thermal barrier, let some light in, although a little harsch.
The solar gray covers, that have a thermal barrier, let in more light, that is soft, but no direct sun light.
Fiberglass covers let in brown light, if any light at all, and are single thickness.
Gel coated fiberglass covers, are single thickness and let in zero light.
The white or solar gray covers never allow "bright" sun light in.
Metal covers allow no light, ever. But they do let in heat and/or cold as the case may be.
