Citizen Science: Globe at Night

Hawthorn Hollow Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum

Description



Globe at Night is an international citizen science project that involves the public measuring and collecting night sky brightness observations to help scientists understand the impact of light pollution. KPL has created circulating observation kits to aid local Citizen Scientists, and astronomy experts from Hawthorn Hollow will teach us how to find certain star patterns to use with the kit equipment to collect and submit data about local light pollution.

This program will be followed by Stargazing at the Schoolyard Observatory 9:30 PM - 11:59 PM.

Both programs are completely outdoors at the Hawthorn Hollow Schoolyard Observatory and will be cancelled if cloud cover is more than 40% at dusk.
