GLOBE at Night 2013
The GLOBE at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. The worldwide campaign invites citizen-scientists to record the brightness of the night sky by visually matching the appearance of a constellation like Orion with star maps of progressively fainter stars or using meters to obtain more precise measurements. Measurements are submitted to a central website by computer or smart phone. From these data an interactive map of all worldwide observations is created.
There are five GLOBE at Night campaigns in 2013: January 3 - 12, January 31 - February 9, March 3 - 12, 2013, March 31 - April 9, and April 29 - May 8. Click here for more information.
