Night sky light pollution, please
Windy is a wonderful app and I am enjoying it very much.
However I can not find light pollution map or bortle scale map on it.
So I can only switch to another site(like this) to ensure where I can take photos of milky way and stars and go back to Windy to check when the cloud conditions can meet shoot requirement.
If Windy develop above functions or someone can develop that plugin, which could be layers of VIIRS or World Atlas 2015, it will be very nice and convenient.
Hope that day come true, lol.

@noclip Hello, pollution maps can be found in Air Quality section.

I guess the query is about light pollution, very important to astronomers (and some night bugs and night butterflies), but completely useless to weather. Indeed, some of VIIRS satellite products could render night light pollution on maps (more details here).
These maps of light pollution at night do not vary day by day, nor month by month, maybe a little year after year. So it's a fixed map that you can keep for a year.
@idefix37 Thank you, you'r right. I've relied on Windy, so maybe the LP map not update so frequently but I just want that the two layers can be together.

I would also like this feature. The more kinds of layers the better if you ask me
