GEAR-UP FOR GLOBE AT NIGHT 2010: March 3-16!

With half of the world’s population now living in cities, many urban  
dwellers have never experienced the wonderment of pristinely dark  
skies and maybe never will. Light pollution is obscuring people’s long- 
standing natural heritage to view stars.  The GLOBE at Night program  
is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness  
of the impact of light pollution by encouraging everyone everywhere to  
measure local levels of night sky brightness and contribute  
observations online to a world map.  All it takes is a few minutes to  
participate between 8–10 pm, March 3–16.  Your measurements will make  
a world of difference.  For more information, visit the Web site at www.globeatnight.org
