The Great Worldwide Star Count

October 9-23, 2009 (The dates in which the actual event occurs.)

These two websites provide important information for those who want to participate in the Star Count. It also gives a little backround on why the Star Count was started.

The Great Worldwide Star Count was started mainly to make people more aware of how light pollution really affects how many stars you can see at night. Another reason is to get people more involved in astronomy. Since we live in the Northern Hemisphere we are asked to observe Cygnus, the swan. I live 42.447697 North and -82.904884 West.
I can't wait for a clear night to participate.
