Home > Light Pollution

    Below is a false color image of the Midwest taken from Google earth with a light pollution overlay added. As you can see, Chicago is the capital of light pollution in this area. West Virginia, Missouri and the northwest tip of Wisconsin (farthest to nearest and darkest to lighter) are worthy of consideration for an extended astronomy sojourn. If you do not have Google Earth or the overlay and like what you see, visit my "Links page".
