Join the Great World Wide Star Count

Venus is currently in the head of the Scorpion. On the evenings of the 26th to 28th of November (From Sunday to Tuesday), Venus will be very close to the bright red star Antares, you should be able to see this from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm local times. Very worthwhile watching (with Jupiter up above the sky is quite attractive).

If you are out and about watching Venus, why not participate in the Great World Wide Star Count?
This is an annual event designed to map light pollution in the skies. All you have to do is match simple charts of stars with the sky to estimate light pollution.

The count is open until November 3, so why not have a go!
