Hello All,

A new book about light pollution around the world is now available. Fabio
Falchi has done a tremendous amount on it, and many SQM users
participated and provided their readings to help produce this book.

Here is a description of the book:
  The Light Pollution World Atlas is the most powerful tool to raise
  awareness the impact of this form of pollution around the world. The
  new version marks a major breakthrough in enabling people, governments,
  local authorities, researchers and industry to address this global
  challenge. After fifteen years, the second Light Pollution World Atlas
  shows a significant increase of artificial sky brightness across time
  and continents. We are facing the deterioration of a legacy with strong
  cultural, scientific, environmental, healthy and aesthetic
  repercussions. The time to act is now. 

The book is available here:

Best regards,
Anthony Tekatch
