August 9 2022, Stefan Taube

Following the success of the Sky Quality Map of Germany, Oculum Verlag has produced another pull-out map showing light pollution. The Sky Quality Map of Europe is a comprehensive source of information for anyone looking for dark skies in Europe.

Sky Quality Map

Additionally, the map can play an integral role in the public relations activities of observatories and also contribute towards the conservation of nature as light pollution is not only annoying for astronomers, but it is also a significant cause of insect death.

Satellite images were used to generate data which renowned Italian researchers Fabio Falchi and Riccardo Furgoni then processed.

This data was carefully calculated, taking numerous factors into account, to enable them to reach reliable scientific conclusions about artificial light in the night sky.

Sky Quality Map

A high-quality travel map was used as a cartographic basemap. Even small towns, bodies of water, train tracks, streets and attractions are listed on the map. This means the map can be used for planning as well as for navigation.

Renowned and reliable: the classic earth globes either with or without illumination; with political or physical map images. But thanks to the newest data from more than 50 years of space science, we now have their successors: modern planet globes!

Reimagine the classics: a celestial globe of Räthgloben

Think about fetching the unique beauty of the night sky into your home. With this globe of Räthgloben 1917, you don’t need to go outside or wait for starry nights. Like its classical predecessors, this globe also has a double-image feature, meaning it shows single star spots while not illuminated, which vary in their size depending on their brightness. Turning on the integrated lamp, the stars connect to symbols and zodiac signs. Who could have thought that? The globe turns into your own little night sky!

Like a ghost: Stellanova floating globe Saturn

Extraordinary and fascinating at the same time: that is how the Stellanova floating globes can be described. In the picture is shown the Saturn globe with 15cm diameter.

With additional electronics in the base and magnets in the upper part, the globe is held in between – and appears to float magically! This high-tech device is of course the center of attention as soon as assembled. Bring home the weightlessness of the universe!
