CPRE

Hi Friend,
Star Count is now open for submissions!

Doing a count is simple – whether you live in town or country, just look to the night sky on a clear night from tonight until 14 February and tell us how many stars you can see within the constellation of Orion.

It’s an activity you can do at home and a great way to connect to nature during lockdown. Will you take part?

WHY ARE PEOPLE COUNTING STARS THIS WEEK? – BBC NEWS

Experts want to get an accurate picture of light pollution levels, by asking members of the public to count how many stars they can see.

Organisers at Campaign to Protect Rural England want people across the country to focus on the stars in Orion, between 6 and 14 February 2021.

Light pollution can be harmful to birds, insects and other creatures.
