Community, sustainability and wellness will come together in a unique campus-wide event at Northern Kentucky University on April 9th. The event will attempt to establish a record for most people on teeter totters at one time and make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.

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.
