Lighting an athletics track

The visibility of moving objects depends on the angular size, speed and luminance of their background and the luminance of the environment. A high level of lighting is required since the small, black, fast-moving puck must be contrasted with the ice rink so that spectators and players can see it. This is especially true when there is a large distance between the ice and the spectators, such as in sands or corridors.
Since ice acts as a good diffuse reflector, there should not be strong light patterns that can distract from the game. Good lighting uniformity is important to see the puck.
