It’s that time of year again – time to go outside,  look up, and submit your observations for research!

The Globe at Night program is a combination educations/outreach and citizen science program.  They have the dual goals of educating people about light pollution, and collecting data on light pollution.  This year, they’re asking for observations from March 3 – 16.

Full step-by-step instructions (including videos and extra links to help you with each step) are on the Globe at Night website. To participate,match your view of Orion with one of the magnitude charts to get the current sky brightness. Then go to the report form and enter  your location (latitude and longitude – you can get that from the homepage too) magnitude and cloud cover estimates, and any comments.  That’s it!  If you can already find Orion, it won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time!

So lend a hand, and tell a friend. Send some observations to Globe at night this year!
