For anyone who's downloaded (or interested in downloading) the Google Earth plug-in for Google Maps, here's a glimpse of the power (and a handy place to refer back to when checking how much light pollution there is in a given area). It is just for North America and doesn't include a search capability, but it is pretty easy to interactively search for a spot on the map. Search for "google earth light pollution overlay" to find similar maps for other areas of the Earth.
