Light Pollution Map
« on: 09:36:07, 23 November, 2014 »
I've seen a few of these over the months but this is the best one I've seen yet.

Apparently up to date too

I'm not convinced by it ...

Zoom out & check the Atlantic ... or the northern reaches of Canada ...  Seems both those areas have a much higher degree of light pollution than my back yard, according to this map !!!

A fleet of British war ships or a fleet of Argentinian ones about to pounce or how about a wind farm or a fleet of clocked Romulan  warbirds ?!?!

 Lol.  As far as my neck of the woods, yeah, it does look a bit closer to my experience... still firmly in the red though.  :-(

 One thing I would point out though is humidity can play a part in those maps also (and in the case of Canada, auroras maybe?).  High humidity can make a site look like less lp to a satellite, but instead it makes it much worse on the ground.  I'm not talking clouds here, just humidity.

PLEASE REMOVE ME
