CPRE Dark Skies Star Count

Posted on 30th January, 2019

 

 

"TAKE PART: 2 February - 23 February

 

Help us reclaim our dark skies

Dark, starry skies are one of the most magical sights the countryside can offer. But light pollution means many of us can’t see the stars. We want to reconnect people with the wonder of our glorious night skies.

 

You can take part in #StarCount2019 and help us find our darkest skies, to ensure more of us can experience this natural wonder.

 

Our Star Count will take place this February, with support from the British Astronomical Association, and we’ll be asking you to look up at the night sky and tell us how many you can see in Orion. You can do this from anywhere in England.

 

Your results will help us to create a map showing the best places to enjoy the stars. And it will also support our work to combat light pollution and reclaim our dark skies.

 

How to take part in Star Count 2019:

Try to pick a clear night for your count, with no haze or clouds, then wait until after 7pm so the sky is really dark. We’ll be accepting results taken from Saturday 2 February until Saturday 23 February, but the best time to do the count is from 2-9 February, when the moon is smallest, so the skies are darkest!"

 

More information on how to count the stars with the naked eye for the 2019 count survey and to submit your count.
