Quote:Quote:This is supposedly the more accurate of the several color coded maps that represent the Bortle ScaleI like this one!! it puts me almost in a blue zone! But, don't try to magnify it too much, or it gets all confused, and at least in NW Mass, puts some definitely downtown areas in the greatly expanded blue zone.

Quote:I have read Tony's article and it's really awesome for people living in the States, Canada and Mexico.

Sure there are rural areas here which have dark skies but the cities have horrible light pollution and sky glow.
