Hey all,

I'm curious about the light pollution levels in different neighborhoods. I recently checked my area using the Light Pollution Map, and it was pretty eye-opening. I'm in a Bortle Class 6 area, which isn't great for stargazing.

Here's a screenshot of my neighborhood's light pollution map:

What's it like in your area? Share your maps and let's see how different locations compare. It would be great to identify some dark sky spots that are within a reasonable driving distance for weekend stargazing trips!
