Light-Pollution Abatement Resources

Crtitical to LPA efforts is access to the "right type" of lights. This page has a list of manufacturers of amber lights.

Global Light-Pollution Maps

Resources that show the extent of light pollution around the world can be useful for visualizing the over-arching situation.

  • The Blue Marble Program provides one such resource. This annotated and navigable image of the Earth at night shows the lights of towns smaller than 1,000 persons. The effort originated in Denmark, but covers the entire world.
  • Another is the Light Pollution Map website, which displays annual research data on global light pollution. This includes the comprehensive 2015 Light-Pollution Atlas data, as well as annual Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) data dating back to 2012.
