I am cheap and I used a white foam cord board cut to size and held in place with screen clips. The screen clips are similar to the ones that hold the clear vinyl window covers on the screen door. These can be purchased at a local hardware store and the foam cord board from an arts and craft store. See attached pictures.

I like, where did you get it and how is it installed?

My wife bought some broad cloth at the fabric store. I unscrewed the ceiling fixture, laid a couple layers on top of it and put it back. I have not felt any heat since I did that, but I still get plenty of light.

I have tired other remedies, but I like this one the best.

I finally settled on that look from Amazon. They are available at Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Amazon and I'm sure, other places. They have lots of designs and styles.
It installed easily with water, a squeegee and a utility knife or scissors to cut to fit. Get the glass/plastic wet, place film over area and squeegee the water out until the water is gone and all bubbles are removed.

I used this product I bought at Home Depot for about $5. R-Tech 1-1/2 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. Rigid Foam Insulation Has an R valve of about 5. Works great in my skylight and is easy to cut.

We have noticed the hot shower for a few years. Finally I decided to do something about it. I purchased a windshield sun screen, cut it to fit the frame of the skylight. I attached sticky back Velcro dots along the edges of frame and shade and stuck into place. Cheap, lightweight, and if you want light or heat it just pulls off and then re-attaches.

I would figure out a way to cover it on the outside. Something like an opaque bin.
