Rewild the Sussex night sky by tackling light pollution
Take part in Star Count until February 26 to become a ‘cosmic citizen scientist’ and help measure the impact of light on our views of the galaxy.
Star Count, organised by the national CPRE charity helps to measure the effect light is having on our views of the galaxy.
Dark and starry skies are a sight to behold but our buildings and roads can emit light, affecting our views and causing problems for wildlife.
We want to monitor how much light is obscuring our views of the night sky so we can better mitigate its effects on nature. That is why we are encouraging everyone in Sussex to become a cosmic citizen scientist for the night.
You do not need any special equipment and it only takes 20 minutes. All you have to do is register via CPRE’s website here.
There is even a Star Count activity pack for children aged five and up which can be downloaded here.
Note: the end date for the Star Count has been moved back from 24 to 26 February.
