Insulation on flourescent lights?


I have put this exact light in my ceiling joist in my garage and am wondering if I can put insulation on the top of it? I can't find anything online about that. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Just a guess here...

I doubt that it is rated for insulation contact. Normally flourescents aren't recessed in insulated ceilings, they're recessed in dropped ceilings. Just a guess though.
