Students participate in a global campaign to observe and record the faintest visible stars as a means of measuring light pollution in a given location. By locating and observing the constellation Orion in the night sky and comparing it with stellar charts, students from around the world will learn how the artificial lighting in their community contributes to light pollution. Student contributions to the online database will document the visible night sky.
