Independent meter readings of natural sunlight were taken on a sunny day in Michigan on April 19th, 2005 at approximately 4:09pm. The sunlight readings were then compared to measurements of light emitted indoors from the BlueMax™ Desk Lamp (away from any sunlight) for comparison. The meter readings in the photographs below show that sunlight and BlueMax™ are essentially identical. The technical measurement equipment used was a cal-COLOR400 calibrated precision colormeter. The scientific instrument was calibrated against standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology on April, 7 2005.

BlueMax Lighting™ was specifically designed to be the most natural lighting source on the market. The addition of 6 custom phosphors along with a high output 70 watt full spectrum bulb have combined to create the closest thing to sunlight indoors.
