How many stars can you count in Orion from where you live? Help shed light on light pollution! Take a few minutes to monitor your local night sky brightness and submit your measurement online. With half the world’s population now living in cities, light pollution is a huge problem; yet you can easily be part of a local solution. The "GLOBE at Night" campaign runs from March 3 to March 16, 2010.
This great little website has family and teacher activity packets available for download related to this event, as well as podcasts, posters, postcards and all kinds of graphs charts and maps dealing with light pollution.
Count the stars of Orion tonight and register your star count with this program....FUN
