SHED LIGHT ON LIGHT POLLUTION! JOIN THE GLOBE AT NIGHT CAMPAIGN, 16-28 MARCH!

At least 1 out of 6 Europeans, 2 out of 5 Americans, and 1 out of 10 people worldwide have never seen 90% of the stars in our night sky. With half the world’s population now living in cities, this problem is only getting worse. Yet you can easily be part of a local solution to a global problem.

Shed light on light pollution! Take a few minutes to monitor your local night sky brightness, place your measurement on-line noting your location, date and time and within a few weeks see a map of light pollution levels worldwide.

Be part of the “GLOBE at Night” citizen-science campaign and make a world of difference! The GLOBE at Night campaign runs March 16-28, 2009. Help preserve our natural heritage for generations to come. Find out more information at the GLOBE at Night web site (
www.globe.gov/GaN). GLOBE at Night is an official International Year of Astronomy Dark Skies Awareness cornerstone project.
