Star Count is back! 17-24 February

The annual Star Count organised by CPRE The Countryside Charity is back, and they’d like your help to map out the nation’s view of the night sky. It will take place between 17th and 24th February. Save the dates and sign up to count the stars. It’s a safe, outdoor activity to do as a family or household, from your home, garden, balcony or even bedroom window, and everyone can take part.

Each year, the results from Star Count help them identify where star-spotters are enjoying deep, dark skies and monitor the impact of light pollution across the country. By showing on a map where light pollution is most serious, they can work with local councils and others to decide what to do about it.
