I did the same thing. Works very well. I have two skylights and with the sun coming through the ac just couldn't keep up. This solved the problem.

I applied a film to the underside of the skylight. Bought the film (it reduces u.v. penetration) from one of the big box stores. This still allows light, but seems to have reduced the "heat".

We are also interested in doing something similar (just not sure what right now.) Was wondering about the outer skylight distorting or cracking from the reflected heat. Anyone notice a problem with doing this sort of mod?

My exterior bubble cracked and leaked due to sloppy installation at the factory. When I changed it I went back with a smoked tint bubble. Read about it here.

D-I-Y Shower Skylight Bubble Change

But before that I was roasting in the summer heat and wanted to sleep a bit after sun up, so I took down the inner "garnish" and just put a piece of parchment paper over the little window in the garnish.

Cheap fix, about 10 minutes, helped a lot. And it didn't mess with the outer bubble.
