Great for astronomers and astrophotographers! This background places the nationwide city light pollution map under the current radar / satellite image layers. The brighter the colors, the more light pollution, the darker colors such as blue, gray and black, indicate dark to very dark skies.

Also works if you want to get cool star and storm shots. Or if you're trying to avoid that nasty green glow from city light pollution... just aim towards the gray / black on the map, and you'll be good to go!
