Star Count 2019 Star Count 2019

Everyone is invited to take part in Star Count 2019 to help map our magical dark skies.

CPRE’s Star Count 2019 gives people the opportunity to become ‘citizen scientists’ by taking part in a cosmic census that will help to map our dark skies. The nationwide Star Count, which is supported by the British Astronomical Association, will be running for the first three weeks of February (Saturday 2 February – Saturday 23 February). Stargazers, whether in town or countryside, will be asked to count the number of stars they can see (with the naked eye) within the constellation of Orion, which is only visible in the winter months.
