GLOBE at Night

GLOBE at Night is the first international event of its kind designed to observe and record the visible stars as a means of measuring light pollution in a given location. Help us reach our goal of 5,000 observations entered on the GLOBE web site! Participation is open to anyone - anywhere in the world - who can get out side and look skyward during the week of March 22-29, 2006.

GLOBE at Night is an excellent activity for families and student groups, and requires no special training or instruction. The GLOBE at Night web site provides all the information needed to participate, including guides for teachers, students, and parents. Spread the word to your colleagues overseas, too, and help us reach our goal of 5,000 observations from around the world!
