Star Party Sites vs. Light Pollution in the United States

Greetings all,
  Since I'm taking a GIS program at the FRCC the next couple of years, thought some of you might
be interested in the first project, since it shows star party sites around the Colorado area.
This first map is an Albers projection of the United States, a template that comes with ArcGIS9,
it is overlaid on a light pollution map and "georeferenced" or orthorectified. The little green " + "
are the sites themselves. Each one (that I can find) will have 'contact' information and indicate
whether or not there is a  Dark Sky Clocks (3721) for that site.                                              5/23/05
