Small part of the new light pollution map

An example of the differences between countries seen from the ISS. Belgium uses mainly orange lighting (low pressure sodium lamps) and illuminates all its highways, The Netherlands illuminates only a few highways. Germany does not light its highways and has much lower illumination levels. Google outreach contributed to the project.
