The Great World Wide Star Count

Join us this coming October for an exciting new citizen science campaign – the Great World Wide Star Count (www.starcount.org).  This international event encourages everyone to go outside, look skywards after dark, count the stars they see in certain constellations, and report what they see online. 

This inaugural Windows After Dark event is designed to raise awareness about light pollution and the night sky as well as encourage learning in astronomy.  All the information needed to participate is available on the Star Count Web site.  The Star Count uses a simple protocol and an easy data entry form. 

At the conclusion of the event, the submitted data will be analyzed and a map will be generated highlighting the results of this new citizen science campaign.  Mark your calendars and plan on joining thousands of other students, families, and citizen scientists counting stars this October! The Great World Wide Star Count will be held from October 1st through October 15, 2007

Please help us get the word out to all interested star counters!  Download our flyer at www.starcount.org/GWWSC2007_flyer.pdf
