The Big Aussie Starhunt
is well underway! I did my survey tonight, the first chance I've had with the cloud and kids. The Big Aussie Starhunt
is a Australia wide event to get people more familiar with our wonderful night sky, and to raise awareness of light pollution so it's well worth participating . All you have to do is count how many stars you can see in Scorpius during Science Week
(15 – 23 August 2009). The 23rd is coming up fast, so get out and have a go! Use SkippySky
to get cloud cover predictions.
