Hey everyone,

I wanted to share some of the best resources I've found for combating light pollution. If you're passionate about preserving our night skies, these can be incredibly helpful:

  1. International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) - They provide guidelines, advocacy tools, and information on dark-sky places.
  2. Dark Sky Finder - An interactive map that helps you find dark sky locations near you.
  3. Light Pollution Map - A detailed global map showing light pollution levels.
  4. Globe at Night - A citizen-science project that invites people to measure and report their night sky brightness observations.
  5. Stellarium - A free, open-source planetarium software that helps you see how light pollution affects your view of the stars.

What other resources have you all found useful? Let's compile a comprehensive list!
