Globe at Night Light Pollution Survey for February 19-28, 2014
Globe at Night, the international light pollution survey, is running its second survey this year from February 19-28.
Basically, an hour or so after sunset (8-10 pm) head out, look to the north to find Orion (for everybody) then check how many stars are visible, and report your observations. It's a great excuse to get outdoors and look at the sky. You might even see the International Space Station or an Iridium flare.
You can submit your results via a smart phone or tablet. To do this, you can use the web application at www.globeatnight.org/webapp/. Globe at Night is also on Facebook and Twitter.
