Earth Calendar for March 5th and 6th
The GLOBE at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise awareness of the impact of light pollution by inviting citizen-scientists to measure their night sky brightness and submit their observations to a website from a computer or smartphone. Light pollution threatens not only our "right to starlight", but can also affect energy consumption, wildlife and health. The GLOBE at Night campaign has run for two weeks each winter and spring for the last six years. there are two more opportunities to participate this year: March 13th - 22nd and April 11th - 20th.
