Found via Help Make Better Map of Global Light Pollution - Wired science: The Globe at Night project gathering data about the light pollution all over the world.

I remember really 'seeing' light pollution when on a late trip in a very dark area in Schotland we stopped and I looked up and I saw the Milky Way for the first time.

So all go, look at the sky in the evening and help improve the light pollution map of the world!
Update: The Bad Astronomer also writes about light pollution (but does not mention the globe at night project): The skies at night, are too darn bright found via Help Map Global Light Pollution, By Starlight - Slashdot.
