Does anyone know how to overlay the entire US light pollution map on to Google Earth without doing it segment by segment? Right now I have a multitude of areas, but would like to do it in one fell swoop. Not sure what a fell swoop is, but it sounds right.

Looked it up. Quite deadly it seems. Perhaps not apropos but adequate.

I find this site easier to use than fiddling with the light pollution overlays on google earth. The only disadvantage is that you have to find the site by zooming in rather than searching for a specific location.
