Where did this come from? Can you get maps for the whole UK?
I ask because I'm interested in light pollution levels in places I might visit in Scotland and northern England.

which i got via google onto a windows live map of scotland you could do the same for anywhere in the uk the above one is created by cpre I think?

There are others availiable from below

these cover almost the whole world but i thought the first one was more detailed.
